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.
