Under the Illinois Sex Offender Registration Act, a person convicted of a sex crime in Illinois often must register as a sex offender. This means that the conviction may show up searches related to job applications and housing. If you have been accused of a sex crime that requires sex offender registration, an acquittal or a not-guilty verdict can keep your name off the sex offender registration list.
