Illinois Supreme Court takes up 'revenge porn' issue

The Illinois Supreme Court has heard arguments concerning "revenge porn," defined as the distribution of sexually explicit content without the subject's consent. The high court in the state is in the process of determining whether First Amendment protections allow an individual to make such images or videos in their possession available after a relationship sours.

Man faces arson charges in grandmother's death

A 32-year-old Illinois man announced in court on March 26 that he had set the fire that led to the death of his 87-year-old grandmother several days earlier, on March 22. The man was appearing by video monitor from jail when he incriminated himself and said that he had done the act because of a mental disability.

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.
