Springfield- During a busy week on the Illinois Senate floor, Senator Pamela J. Althoff (R-Crystal Lake) got unanimous support for legislation she sponsored making Criminal Sexual Assault a Class 1 felony for repeat offenders.
“We had a case in our area where a repeat offender was given a more lenient penalty because we did not have tough enough laws,” Althoff said. “The McHenry County State’s Attorney was really pushing for this legislation and I was happy to provide help. Under Senate Bill 2049, judges will have more discretion on how to sentence repeat violators of the law.”" /> Skip to Main Content
