Charged with Rape? If Convicted, You Could Face a Sentence of Over 100 Years

If you are convicted of rape in Chicago, you could face a prison sentence that would be longer than a sentence for some murder cases. Depending upon the circumstances surrounding your case, you could spend anywhere from six years up to a maximum 120 years behind bars, as well as fines over $20,000. The penalties for rape are some of the most severe in the judicial system, and rightly so. However, if you have been falsely arrested for aggravated criminal sexual assault, 120 years can sound more than overwhelming. That is why anyone who is facing such charges in Chicago or elsewhere in Illinois needs the assistance of a proven defense attorney who can ensure that you are treated fairly and provide an aggressive defense.

 

Your attorney will be aware of the fact that the prosecutor may seek to file other charges against you in addition to the aggravated criminal sexual assault charge. Prosecutors will do this in the hope that if a technicality prevents them from getting a conviction on one charge or evidence is not admitted on another charge, they will still have a chance at a conviction on any of the remaining charges. However, your attorney will be adept at providing you with the counsel and representation that you may require on a variety of charges and will craft a solid defense on your behalf.

How Mandatory Minimums for Drug Trafficking Work in Illinois

Drug Crimes | Drug Trafficking

Being charged with possession of illegal substances is not something to be taken lightly, but it could land you in especially hot water if you’re convicted in the state of Illinois.

Why? Because Illinois courts enforce mandatory minimum sentences for drug trafficking, and you can be charged with drug trafficking based on the amount of substance in your possession (even if you didn’t intend to distribute it) due to state laws.
