Chicago Defense Attorneys for Sexual Assault Charges

Chicago Rape Defense Attorneys

Experienced Lawyers for Defending Against Allegations of Rape and Other Sex Crimes

Few criminal offenses attract more attention on an individual's background than those commonly referred to as sex crimes. A single allegation of rape or sexual assault can follow you for the rest of your life, even if you are never convicted. A conviction, of course, is even more serious than an accusation. In addition to the associated criminal penalties, you may be required to register as a sex offender.

At Luisi Legal Group, we realize that the laws related to rape and sexual assault can be very confusing and that facing sex crime charges can be overwhelming. We are equipped to help you fight the allegations against you and to protect your future, as well as your reputation.

Criminal Sexual Assault in Illinois

Under Illinois law, rape falls into the category of criminal sexual assault. Criminal sexual assault is a Class 1 felony, with a mandatory minimum penalty of 4 to 15 years in prison for a first conviction, depending on the circumstances of the case. A second or subsequent offense is a Class X, with a possible prison sentence of life. If you are convicted, you will also be required to register as a sex offender with the state and your local municipality. Depending upon the nature of the crime, the charges may be elevated to aggravated criminal sexual assault, which carries even more substantial penalties.

Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys

There are always two sides to every story. This is especially true in a large number of rape and sexual assault cases, particularly if the alleged victim's consent is at issue. It is also not uncommon for law enforcement to rationalize or exaggerate the existence of evidence to obtain a confession that is untrue. Our experienced attorneys understand how to work through these types of situations, even if you were forced to confess to a crime you did not commit. We will listen closely to your explanation of the case, then conduct a full investigation to find any and all information that could be used in your defense.

For more than 15 years, the lawyers at Luisi Legal Group have been helping clients charged with a wide range of sex crimes, including rape and criminal sexual assault.
