A participant in a mob action that by violence inflicts injury to the person or property of another commits a Class 4 felony, which is punishable by 1-3 years in prison.

A participant in a mob action who does not withdraw when commanded to do so by a peace officer commits a Class A misdemeanor, which can result in up to a year in jail.

It is common for those charged with mob action in Illinois to also face charges such as aggravated battery, as prosecutors will often charge mob action in cases where multiple people are accused of jointly attacking another person.

Mob action and charges that tend to accompany it in Illinois are serious matters that can result in a lengthy term of incarceration. For that reason any person facing a mob action charge should consult with an attorney at once.
