Disorderly Conduct Penalties

In Illinois, you may be arrested for disorderly conduct if you act in a manner which reasonably alarms or disturbs another person. This includes getting into an argument in public, being loud while out with friends, triggering a fire alarm or bomb alert under false pretenses, or even peeping at someone who has a reasonable expectation of privacy.

Penalties for disorderly conduct vary based on the severity of the crime. The offense may be punishable by a maximum jail sentence of 30 days and a fine of up to $1,500, or perhaps a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and a fine of up to $2,500.
