Chicago Aggravated Sexual Assault Attorneys

Attorneys for Allegations of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault or Predatory Sexual Assault

There is no such thing as a minor sex crime charge. Even if you are never brought to trial or convicted, an allegation of rape or sexual assault can create problems for the rest of your life. It is possible, however, to face sex crime charges that are more serious than rape or sexual assault, and a conviction on such charges could lead to decades in prison. If you have been charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault or any charge related to sexual abuse, you need the assistance of a qualified defense attorney. At Luisi Legal Group, we are equipped to provide responsible, cost-effective representation, no matter how overwhelming your case may seem.

Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault Defense

While rape and other forms of criminal sexual assault are always extremely serious, certain factors can elevate the charges to aggravated criminal sexual assault. Aggravated criminal sexual assault is a Class X felony, punishable by a minimum of 6 to 30 years in prison, with a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. According to Illinois law, aggravating factors include:

  • Age of the alleged victim;
  • Disability status of the alleged victim;
  • Age of the alleged perpetrator;
  • Presence or a dangerous weapon;
  • Infliction of bodily harm;
  • Use of a controlled substance on the alleged victim; and
  • Discharge of a firearm during the commission of the alleged offense.

The experienced attorneys at our law firm understand the challenges inherent in dealing with such serious charges. We realize that, even when you have been accused of a sex crime, you have rights that must be protected. Our team will work hard on your behalf, and we are ready, when necessary, to work with law enforcement and prosecutors to reduce or eliminate the charges against you.

Cook County Lawyers for Clients Charged With Sexual Abuse Crimes

Sex crimes that involve minor children are, in most cases, the most serious of all sex-related allegations. These charges can range from a Class A misdemeanor for criminal sexual abuse (two individuals under age 16 engaged in consensual sex, for example), to aggravated criminal sexual abuse (including sexual abuse committed against a minor family member), to predatory criminal sexual assault. While the actual penalties may vary based on the severity of the charge, a conviction will nearly always require you to register as a sex offender.

Predatory criminal sexual assault statutorily includes any sexual activity between an alleged perpetrator age 17 and over and an alleged victim under the age of 13. Depending on the circumstances of the case, a conviction for predatory criminal sexual assault can result in a mandatory minimum incarceration of up to 60 years, with the possibility of life in prison.
