CONSEQUENCES FOR DISORDERLY CONDUCT OFFENSES:
Depending on the severity of the offense, a disorderly conduct case can be a class 1 misdemeanor or a felony charge. In misdemeanor cases, the penalty could include a maximum of 6 months jail, up to a $2,500 fine (not including surcharges), and probation.
Additionally, if it involves firearms (the offender “recklessly handles, displays, or discharges” a weapon), a disorderly conduct may result in a disorderly conduct felony charge.
Punishments and consequences for felony convictions are much more severe than in a misdemeanor charge: incarceration and significant penalties and fines. Consequently, offenders who have prior felony convictions could face even greater punishments.
