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.
Being accused of felony crimes can expose a person to severe consequences. This includes the possibility of big fines, prison time and having a felony on one’s record.
