Some common crimes that fall within the Class 1 Felony classification in Illinois are: residential burglary, criminal sexual assault, cannabis trafficking, vehicular invasion, aggravated insurance fraud, second degree murder, gunrunning, street gang recruiting on school grounds, aggravated robbery, vehicular hijacking, indecent solicitation of a child, child pornography, falsely making a terrorist threat, promoting juvenile prostitution, taking a hypodermic syringe inside a penal institution, firearms trafficking, delivery of a controlled substance to a pregnant woman, possession of a deadly substance, possession of cannabis over 5,000 grams, trafficking in persons, and more.

For instance, our area of expertise can be found in Kendall, Kane, LaSalle and DeKalb Counties, but if you are arrested in Cook County, you may be better off speaking with a Chicago criminal lawyer. The courts (judges and jury) can apply the maximum penalty available within each felony charge, the minimum or a combination of punishments.

Life After a Felony Illinois

A felony is a very serious offense in the U.S., so after serving your sentence, your life will encounter some obstacles. The felony will be on your record, so convicted felons have trouble when seeking employment. Recently, Illinois has been attempting to assist convicted felons. In 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed legislation, commonly referred to as “ban the box”, which does not allow employers to ask job seekers for their criminal history on job applications.

Felony convictions can determine if you qualify for federal assistance for student loans, but this status is also changing. In addition, if you have been convicted of a felony for a drug offense, you will be prohibited from filing for Federal Assistance, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or welfare.

In Illinois, once sentenced, convictions cannot be expunged for any criminal offense, whether a misdemeanor or felony. Under the right circumstances, some records for misdemeanors, specifically Class 3 and Class 4 felonies, may be sealed.
