The consequences for being convicted of a sex crime are especially tough in Illinois.
In Illinois, sex offenses frequently result in consecutive sentences, or in other words sentences which must be served one after the other, as opposed to most other offenses that usually result in concurrent sentences, which are all served at once.
In addition, sex offenses result in additional consequences. Most people convicted of sex offenses in Illinois have to register as sex offenders long after their sentences have been served, and often for life. Serious sex offenses can also result in civil commitment to the Department of Corrections for an indeterminate period of time, even after a criminal sentence has been completed.
In our system, those convicted of sex offenses never stop being punished. Avoiding a sex case conviction is driven in large part by a decision to hire a talented Illinois sex crime lawyer. Call our Chicago criminal defense law firm today at (312) 466-9466.
