(A) A person commits the offense of residential picketing when he or she pickets before or about the residence or dwelling of any person, except when the residence or dwelling is used as a place of business. This chapter does not apply to a person peacefully picketing his own residence or dwelling and does not prohibit the peaceful picketing of a place of employment involved in a labor dispute or the place of holding a meeting or assembly on premises commonly used to discuss subjects of general public interest.
(B) Persons convicted of residential picketing shall be punished as provided in § 130.99. In addition to any other sentence that may be imposed, a court shall order any person convicted of disorderly conduct to perform community service for not less than 30 and not more than 120 hours, if community service is available in the jurisdiction and is funded and approved by the county board where the offense was committed. In addition, whenever any person is placed on supervision for an alleged offense under this section, the supervision shall be conditioned upon the performance of the community service.
