Sex-based offenses are typically punished much more harshly than other types of criminal offenses in Illinois. Someone who is convicted of a sex crime such as sexual abuse, rape, or possession of child pornography may face significant jail time in addition to other criminal penalties. However, some of the most significant consequences of a sex crime conviction do not involve the criminal justice system. These consequences come in the form of irreparable damage to the offender’s reputation.

A conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) can lead to significant administrative and criminal penalties. These penalties are especially harsh if you are convicted of aggravated DUI or you have been convicted of drunk driving one or more times in the past. DUI can lead to the loss of your driver’s license, heavy fines, and even jail time. However, being charged with DUI is not the same thing as being convicted of DUI. If you or a loved one were recently arrested for allegedly drunk driving, it is important to understand the potential defenses to this serious charge.
