What are the penalties of a Class 2 felony in Illinois of being charged with Aggravated Battery of a police officer.

Asked over 2 years ago - Bourbonnais, IL

As the police officer was attempting to arrest and handcuff me for shoplifting. I lightly pushed his hand away as he was attempting to handcuff me? What extra penalties can I expect with a Class 2 felony added to a Class A misdemeanor for Shoplifting?

    Answered . My colleagues have all correctly noted the statutory prison term prescribed by Illinois law for a Class 2 felony. You should know that in unusual circumstances the court can sentence even more severely by imposing a conseutive sentence or an extended term sentence of 7 - 14 years. On the good side, the court also has available less severe sentences including probation, conditional discharge, periodic imprisonment and boot camp programs, some of which might be available. There may be various diversionary programs available, also. You should have an attorney, who can explore all of your options and defenses with you.
