Disorderly Conduct Penalties
In Illinois, disorderly conduct is considered as disturbing the peace or
acting unreasonably enough to alarm or disturb others. This includes making
a false report of a fire or fire alarm, bomb or explosive substance, past
and present crime, abused or neglected child, or a false report to the
Department of Public Health. Unlawful assembly, unlawfully entering someone
else’s property for a lewd purpose, or harassing someone while acting
as a debt collector or collection agent also constitutes as disorderly conduct.
Disorderly conduct is typically considered a misdemeanor, punishable by
a prison sentence of up to 30 days, six months, or one year, based on
whether the charge is either a Class C, Class B, or Class A misdemeanor
with a fine ranging from $1,500 and $2,500. However, they are some cases
where the crime can be charged as a felony.
