The most serious sex crime is sexual assault, also known as rape. If a
person is even accused of committing rape in Illinois, as well as in the
United States, he or she may already be considered as guilty in the eyes
of the media and the public. It’s imperative for those accused of
rape to obtain experienced and skilled legal representation from a qualified
criminal defense lawyer.

obtain the outcome you desire. As a former prosecutor, our founding attorney
knows how the prosecution will approach your case and has a firm understanding
of the state legal system in order to protect your reputation and freedom.
Sexual assault occurs when a person commits a penetrative sexual act against
another without their consent or ability to provide consent. This sex
crime is considered a Class 1 felony, which is punishable by a prison
sentence between four and 15 years and a fine of up to $25,000.
However, an individual may be charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault
if he or she commits the crime in addition to any one of the following
- Use of a dangerous weapon
- The offender discharged a firearm during the act of the crime
- The offender discharged a firearm during the act of the crime and caused
serious bodily harm or death to another individual
- Infliction of bodily harm
- Threatening the life of the victim or another individual
- In commission with another felony offense
- The victim was over the age of 60
- The victim has a physical disability
- The offender drugged the victim with a controlled substance
An aggravated sexual assault offense is considered a Class X felony. This
type of felony is punishable by a prison sentence between six to 30 years,
with possible extended terms up to life.
