Aurora Doctor’s License Suspended after Sex Crimes Charges

You’re supposed to be safe when you visit your doctor. These are professionals dedicated to our good health and taking care of us when at our worst. We trust them because they’ve had to undergo so much training, and we trust them as people because you can’t have a job where you help others for a living and be a bad person – right?

 

Those are just some of the things that might have been going through your head [...]

Don’t Become an Online Dating Site Predator

In recent years, the popularity of online dating has been on a steady upswing. More and more people have been turning to websites like eHarmony and Match.com to help them find potential partners.

 

Unfortunately, online dating sites do more than provide alternative settings in which to seriously seek out and meet new partners. These virtual love services can also be potentially dangerous, sometimes acting as centers for engaging in predatory actions.

 

For some people, the hardest part about [...]

Sex Crimes on the CTA Often Go Unreported

Illinois law deals with perpetrators of sex crimes very seriously—when they catch them. However, studies show that an alarming number of sexual harassment, abuse, and assault crimes go unreported. Victims often feel ashamed, or unsure of whether or not their experience constitutes a crime. This is particularly true in public places like the CTA, where large crowds make it easy for groping to go unnoticed and sexist comments are all too common. In response to this problem, local public transit [...]

High School Hazing Can Be a Sex Crime

High school hazing, depending on who you ask, may be described as a “rite of passage,” a “mostly harmless tradition,” or “just a part of growing up.” In recent years, however, high school hazing has been getting more attention and is now recognized as an act of bullying that sometimes even crosses over into criminal behavior.

 

The latest hazing incident to make headlines comes from a Sayreville War Memorial High School, a prep school in New Jersey, where seven [...]

Juveniles Charged with Sex Crimes Still Must Register as Sex Offenders

Because children lack the same life experience as adults and because their brains have not yet fully developed, they are typically treated differently than adults in the criminal justice system. While juveniles can be tried as adults depending on the nature of their criminal charge, courts generally take a defendant’s age into account when determining penalties. However, the state of Illinois takes a hard line when it comes to juveniles who have allegedly committed sex offenses, and any minor charged [...]

Tax Time Is Almost Here – Could You Accidentally Commit Fraud in IL?

Tax Fraud | Fraud

Everyone dreads tax time. Even if you’re owed a nice rebate, the hassle of preparing your income tax returns is a headache, and most of us put it off until the last minute. However, if you’re not careful when preparing your tax returns, you could face something far more serious than missing a portion of your refund: income tax fraud charges. Individual slip-ups typically fall into the category of negligence rather than fraud, but even seemingly harmless white lies can [...]

Some Illinois Sex Crimes Specifically Aimed at Protecting Kids

Child Pornography | Sex Crimes

State legislation is put into place in order to help to protect the people of Illinois. Doing so allows more people to exercise their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Furthermore, not all Illinoisans are created equal — some are more vulnerable than others. That’s why we have harsher penalties against hate crimes or crimes against the elderly.

Still, children are considered the most vulnerable of us all, so when crimes involve them, the punishment is meant [...]
