Victimless Sex Offenses in Illinois
DuPage County Lawyers Defend Prostitution, Solicitation and Pornography Cases
Depending on the crime, there may be a wide variety of consequences for sexual offenses, even if the crime committed does not have a clear victim. These offenses include things like prostitution, pandering, solicitation, illegal possession of pornography and indecent exposure.
For the more serious offenses, such as possession of child pornography or solicitation of a minor, the penalties may include incarceration, court-ordered treatment programs and registration on the Illinois Sex Offender Registry. Crimes such as indecent exposure, however, may only carry misdemeanor charges and may not include such heavy consequences.
