Penalties for a Sex Crime Conviction
Without the guidance of The Law Offices of Haytham Faraj, PLLC, you could potentially be convicted and face steep penalties such as:
- Jail or prison time
- Restraining orders
- Registration as a convicted sex offender.
It is Illinois law that every person who is convicted of a sex crime, regardless of the charges, register as a sex offender for the rest of their life. This means that whether you were arrested for something as relatively minor, such as exposure or lewd conduct or more serious, such as statutory rape, you will have to register.
The sex offender registry is a public database that houses information for all convicted sex crime felons in the state of Illinois. A national database is also available for serious or repeat offenders. When you are required to register with this database, you will need to provide local law enforcement with your name, age, and residence every year. Failure to register may result in a warrant for your arrest and new charges and penalties. As this registry is information meant to be a public service to citizens who need to protect their children, your conviction details, name, age, place of residence, and any distinguishing information about you such as scars and tattoos will be listed. Being in this registry may limit your housing options and hinder your ability to secure employment.
