As one of the leading Chicago sex offense lawyers, our experience shows that prosecutors usually put extra effort into this category of offenses, and tend to be less willing to reduce charges or negotiate favorable plea agreements.
Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault is commonly referred to as rape. It requires sexual penetration of some orifice. 720 ILCS 5/12-12(f). Any penetration, no matter how slight, is enough. Millimeters can be enough. And the penetration need not be done with a sex organ. Penetration of a vagina or anus with a finger is considered rape if there is no consent and it is done for the purpose of sexual gratification. It also requires force, threat of force, or an inability to consent. The distinction between Aggravated and simple Criminal Sexual Assault is too complex for a brief definition, and should be explored during a legal consultation.
Anyone charged with a sex crime must be prepared to fight and fight hard, or face harsh treatment by judges and prosecutors.
If you have been accused of criminal sexual assault, the stakes are high and your future is on the line. Losing the case can result in a lengthy prison sentence. You will also likely be required to register as a sex offender, which can result in significant problems after serving your penitentiary time.
