Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault

What makes sexual assault an aggravated offense?

In Illinois law, rape is referred to as criminal sexual assault and can escalate to an aggravated offense if certain factors are involved. These aggravating factors include, but are not limited to:

  • The display of or threat to use a deadly weapon
  • Causing bodily harm
  • Threatening or endangering the life of the victim
  • Committing the offense during the commission or attempted commission of any other felony
  • The victim is 60 years of age or older
  • The victim is handicapped
  • The victim is profoundly intellectually disabled
  • Delivering any controlled substance to the victim without their consent, or by using threats or deception

All forms of aggravated criminal sexual assault are Class X felonies. As such, they incur a prison sentence of 6 - 30 years in prison. If the offense was committed against a child or other individual incapable of defense or legal consent, an additional 10, 15, or 25 years could be added to the sentence. Many such offenses are also penalized with a natural life sentence in prison.
