DuPage County Sex Crimes Lawyers
Sexual Assault and Sex Crimes Defense in Illinois
Being labeled a sex offender is a stigma that shadows your existence, requiring lifetime registration, notification of residence, and exclusion from certain job opportunities. In addition, certain sexual felonies carry stiff prison terms, which depending on the class of felony under Illinois statutes may receive a sentence of up to 35 years.
When sex offenses involve children, repercussions are the greatest, in terms of punishment from the criminal justice system and community backlash. Officials swept up in social outrage may deny constitutional rights or arrest targets without substantial evidence. Fear of prison life and brutal treatment by guards or inmates frequently haunt those accused of sex offenses.
Retaining an experienced sex crimes lawyer is vital to securing a favorable outcome. When preparing a strong defense lawyers often discover that false accusations are common-brought about by vindictive persons who wish to smear the reputation or punish someone for whom they hold a grudge.
