For purposes of this Title XIII, the following definitions shall apply unless the context clearly indicates or requires a different meaning:
ACT
The taking of action or a failure or omission to take action. (ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 2-2)
ANOTHER
A person or persons other than the offender. (ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 2-3)
CONDUCT
An act or a series of acts, and the accompanying mental state. (ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 2-4)
OFFENSE
A violation of a penal statute of this Village or state. (ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 2-12)
A person intends, or acts intentionally or with intent, to accomplish a result or engage in conduct described by the section defining the offense, when his or her conscious objective or purpose is to accomplish that result or engage in that conduct. (ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 4-4)
A. 
A person knows, or acts knowingly or with knowledge of:
(1) 
The nature or attendant circumstances of his or her conduct, described by the section defining the offense, when he or she is consciously aware that his or her conduct is of such nature or that such circumstances exist. Knowledge of a material fact includes awareness of the substantial probability that the fact exists.
(2) 
The result of his or her conduct, described by the section defining the offense, when he or she is consciously aware that such result is practically certain to be caused by his or her conduct.
B. 
Conduct performed knowingly or with knowledge is performed willfully, within the meaning of a statute using the latter term, unless the section clearly requires another meaning.
(ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 4-5)
A person is reckless or acts recklessly when he or she consciously disregards a substantial and unjustifiable risk that circumstances exist or that a result will follow, described by the section defining the offense; and such disregard constitutes a gross deviation from the standard of care which a reasonable person would exercise in the situation. An act performed recklessly is performed wantonly, within the meaning of a section using the latter term, unless the statute clearly requires another meaning. (ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 4-6)
A person is negligent, or acts negligently, when he or she fails to be aware of a substantial and unjustifiable risk that circumstances exist or a result will follow, described by the statute defining the offense; and such failure constitutes a substantial deviation from the standard of care which a reasonable person would exercise in the situation. (ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 4-7)
A. 
Elements of the offense. A person commits an attempt when, with intent to commit a specific offense, he or she does any act which constitutes a substantial step toward the commission of that offense.
B. 
Impossibility. It shall not be a defense to a charge of attempt that because of a misapprehension of the circumstances it would have been impossible for the accused to commit the offense attempted.
C. 
A person convicted of an attempt may be fined not to exceed the maximum provided for the offense attempted. If such fine exceeds that set forth in § 130-99 below, however, the Village shall enforce said offense under the provisions of state law.
(ILCS Ch. 720, Act 5, § 8-4)
[Amended 7-27-2016 by Ord. No. 16-16]
Whoever violates any provisions of this Title XIII for which no other penalty is specified shall be subject to the penalty set forth in § 10-99 of the Code.
