Common sex crimes in Illinois include aggravated criminal sexual abuse, aggravated criminal sexual assault, child pornography-related offenses, prostitution-related offenses, and public indecency/indecent exposure. Upon conviction, many sex-related charges can result in felony sentences. The consequences of a felony charge go beyond lengthy prison sentences and steep fines. Because a felony conviction cannot be expunged from your permanent record, it will follow you your entire life. Essential life tasks like gaining housing, employment, and further education will become complicated.
Additionally, many sex-related crimes require the offender to enlist on the Illinois Sex Offender Registry. Placement on the list will not only further complicate the above mentioned tasks, but can place restrictions on everyday tasks, like transportation and how you use social media. It should also be noted that many sex crimes can be elevated to higher charges depending on the circumstances.
Depending on various aggravating factors, such as prior convictions or involvement of a minor, virtually all sex crimes can be raised to more serious offenses with longer prison sentences and higher fines.
