About Sex Offender Violations in Chicago
The term “sex offender” or “sex abuser” refers to someone who has committed a sex crime. What constitutes a sex crime may differ slightly by legal jurisdiction but is generally understood to involve, though not be limited to, the following:
- Child sexual abuse
- Child pornography or exploitation
- Statutory rape
- Sexual harassment
- Internet porn
When someone is convicted of a sexual offense or sex crime but has not actually committed the crime they become a victim themselves. Sex crimes are so heinous that they carry a heavy negative social stigma. Even after serving time in jail or on probation, finding employment in the area where one previously lived and worked or even re-entering society in general can be almost impossible. Depending on the type of crime and conviction the avenues of employment become tightly closed. If the conviction is for any child-related offense, any type of teaching of children or child care employment is not allowed. There are also fields that are forbidden to hire convicted felons. It does not matter if the person maintains their innocence, once the courts have handed down the verdict; all of burden of the labeling, the disgrace and the enforced registration come with it.
