Joliet Sex Crimes Attorney

If you have been accused of sexual assault or another sex crime, you need the strongest defense possible. A Conviction on such a charge can carry heavy penalties and lifelong registry as a sex offender.

At the Law Office of Douglas G. DeBoer, I believe everyone accused of a crime deserves a strong and effective defense.

I defend the rights and freedom of people accused of all types of sex crimes, including:

Sexual assault


Statutory rape

Child sex crimes

Solicitation of a minor

Internet sex crimes

And other sex crimes

I will work to build a strong defense designed to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.

An Experienced and Determined Rape Defense Attorney

I am Douglas G. DeBoer, an attorney who defends people accused of sex crimes and violent crimes. For 13 years, I served as a prosecutor in Will County, where I handled a large number of cases involving alleged sexual assault, rape and other serious crimes.

While in that role, I learned how to evaluate the strength of evidence. I learned valuable insights into the mistakes that police and investigators can make. I learned how weak some evidence can really be. I use that knowledge to defend the rights and freedom of people accused of sexual assault, rape and other felonies and misdemeanors.

Physical Evidence and the Issue of Consent

My firm will carefully review the evidence in your case to develop a defense strategy. This can include physical evidence, such as DNA and other forensic evidence, which may be of benefit to your case.

Many cases of alleged rape and sexual assault hinge on the issue of consent. I will also review the alleged victim’s statements and those of any witnesses. This may enable us to undermine the prosecutor’s case and present an alternative theory regarding what really happened.
