Kankakee Sexual Assault Attorneys

Were you or someone close to you the victim of sexual assault in the workplace or on a school campus? If so, the experienced Kankakee sexual assault attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C. are here to listen to you and help you take legal action against those responsible. Our team has the compassion, skill, and extensive resources necessary to help you get a measure of justice against those that harmed you and those who allowed the assault to happen. We will be here to stand by your side every step of the way, and we will not accept anything else than justice and accountability for what happened.

Under 720 Illinois Compiled Statute 5/11-1.20, a person commits the offense of criminal sexual assault if they commit an act of sexual penetration and use force or threat of force; know that the victim is unable to understand the nature of the act or is unable to give knowing consent; are the family member of a victim less than 18 years of age; or are 17 years of age or older and hold “a position of trust, authority, or supervision in relation to” a victim at least 13 years of age but less than 18 years of age.

A person who commits sexual assault can face criminal charges, which can result in possible fines and imprisonment. Victims of sexual assault can also file civil lawsuits against the offender, an action that is completely separate from the criminal case.

It is extremely important to understand that the burden of proof is far different between criminal and civil cases. Whereas a defendant’s guilt must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt (essentially meaning a jury cannot have any doubt about a person’s guilt) in a criminal case, a plaintiff only needs to demonstrate that a defendant committed a wrongful act by a preponderance of the evidence (the greater weight, or more than half the evidence). The Kankakee sexual assault lawyers can help you hold the person who hurt you accountable in civil court, even if the criminal court won’t. Contact us at (815) 929-9292 to learn more about how we can help you.

Types of Cases We Handle

According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), seven out of every 10 rapes are committed by a person known to the victim. One-quarter of these crimes are committed by former spouses or intimate partners, 45 percent are committed by another acquaintance, and only 28 percent are committed by total strangers.

It is normal to feel angry, scared, and unsure of your rights and legal options. We are here to listen to you and make sure that you understand all of the options available to you.

We’re here to help you take back the power and control of your life after you’ve been victimized, and hold the individual who harmed you accountable. We are prepared to help individuals with:

Workplace Sexual Assault – All employees, male and female, have a right to expect that they will be treated with respect and dignity and will be safe at work. If you were sexually assaulted in the workplace, you could take legal action against the person who attacked you. In some cases, the company could also be held liable for an assault if your employer fostered an unsafe work environment or failed to put adequate security in place to prevent the attack.

Campus Sexual Assault – When a sexual assault happens on a school campus, the illusion of a safe and healthy learning environment can quickly be shattered. Students attend school to better themselves and prepare for a bright future, not to be taken advantage of by others. If you were sexually assaulted on campus, not only could your accuser be held liable, but the administration could also share responsibility for the attack as well.
