The Daily Mail has a section in their article about sentencing for false police reports in Illinois Empire star Jussie Smollett allegedly REHEARSED hoax attack with two Nigerian brothers | Daily Mail Online Filing a false report to police in the State of Illinois is considered an act of disorderly conduct, which is a Class 4 felony. That means that anyone found guilty could face between one and three years in prison. By law, the crime of disorderly conduct is committed in Illinois by anyone who 'transmits or causes to be transmitted in any manner to any peace officer, public officer or public employee a report to the effect that an offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed, knowing at the time of the transmission that there is no reasonable ground for believing that the offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed.' Last week, a central Illinois man was sentenced to three years in state prison after he pleaded guilty to fabricating an Amber alert. On December 15, Mitchell Dutz, 18, told police that three black men stole his car with a 13-month-old infant inside. Dutz used a social media photo of a child he did not know to claim that there was a kidnapping, according to Peoria Journal Star. But police rescinded the Amber alert after it became clear that it was a hoax. Dutz pleaded guilty to motor-vehicle burglary and disorderly conduct. Last month, a Chicago woman was charged with a felony after she allegedly made a 911 call that turned out to be a 'swatting' incident. Keesha S. Ingram, 41, allegedly called police before dawn on December 11 to report that a man was threatening to shoot his wife in their home in Warren Township. Sheriff's deputies responded to the call. They arrived at the scene and set up a perimeter around the house.After making contact with the residents inside, the deputies determined there was no incident to warrant an arrest, according to the Daily Herald. Authorities then determined that they were dealing with a 'swatting' incident whereby a person falsely reports an ongoing crime at a particular address in order to harass the individual who lives there. An investigation led back to Ingram, who is alleged to have known one of the people who lived in the Warren Township home. Investigators believe Ingram made the swatting call out of revenge against the victim, whom she accused of not paying her money that was owed to her. Ingram is still on the loose and is wanted for arrest, according to Patch.
