Welcome to JustAnswer.

"How much time could you get for indirect criminal contempt?"

In what state?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Illinois we stay in Chicago.


They wanted him to testify against someone in trial and he never showed up for court so now they are charging him with indirect criminal contempt

Expert:  Legal-Guru replied 3 years ago.
I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I have been out of town.

The maximum penalty for this type of contempt of court in Illinois is up to 180 days in jail and/or a $500 fine. I hope that answers your question.
