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.
