How Illinois defines sexual assault

Illinois law makes it a crime to commit sexual acts involving penetration with those who don't or can't consent to them. Statutory rape is the term applied to situations involving an adult who has sex with a minor. Even if the act is consensual, the act is still a crime because the minor cannot legally give consent. In many cases, it can be difficult to determine if rape or sexual assault occurred.

What a nystagmus test is and how it's conducted and used

Drivers in Illinois facing possible DUI charges may go through a series of tests to determine if they are under the influence of alcohol, drugs or another substance. One of the common tests performed for this purpose is the nystagmus test. It's a type of test that assesses an individual based on involuntary eye movements. It's conducted by asking an individual to follow either a small flashlight or pen with their eyes as the object is moved back and forth in the front of the person's face from about 12 to 15 inches away, usually after being asked to step out of their vehicle.
