I’ve Dedicated My Life To Fighting For My Clients

Sex Crimes Lawyer In Frankfort, Illinois

Being arrested for or accused of committing a sex crime can impact the rest of your life. Not only could you be facing serious penalties, but your reputation is also at risk, as are your relationships, your career and your freedom. Perhaps more than any other crime, people tend to jump to conclusions when they hear of an alleged sex crime.

Most often, those accused are judged guilty in the hearts and minds of the public before the trial even begins. Being accused of a sex crime can affect your life in a number of different ways, even if the case never makes it to trial. For this reason, it is imperative that you speak with PGO Law Firm right away.

Defense Against A Sex Offense Charge May Involve:

  • Challenging false witness testimony
  • Verifying forensic and DNA testing
  • Challenging the prosecution for creating misleading witness interviews
  • Examining the possibility of mistaken identity
  • Ensuring racial, economic or political bias did not play a role in the arrest

Challenging The Evidence

Illinois does not take sex offenses lightly. Due to the serious nature of the charges, they are investigated thoroughly. This means that substantial evidence needs to be gathered to prove the offense occurred. At PGO Law Firm, I will carefully review the evidence and find the weak points that can be challenged.

Illinois Sexual Offender Registry

Upon a conviction for a sex crime, one of the most severe consequences you could face is the obligatory inclusion in the sex offender registry. This database, accessible to the public, catalogs detailed personal data about you, such as your residence, specifics of your conviction and physical identifiers like your height and weight, as well as any active warrants. Registration on this list is required almost immediately following a conviction, and it necessitates checking in with local law enforcement.

Neglecting to maintain current information on the registry can result in arrest and additional penalties. Regardless of whether you’re currently facing charges or are under investigation, I have a deep understanding of sex crime cases and their proceedings in both Cook and Will counties, which can be leveraged to your benefit in handling your case.

Sex crimes encompass a variety of offenses, ranging from prostitution to possession of child pornography. Illinois punishes sex crimes severely, and it is vital that you work with an experienced attorney.

I can help you fight a range of sex crimes charges, including:

My goal is to keep my clients off of this registry whenever possible. Even in situations where a defendant has committed a crime, it may be possible to declassify the charge as a sex offense. Protecting my clients’ futures is my priority, and I work closely with them to secure the most favorable outcome.

There Is Hope For The Future Beyond Sex Crime Charges
