Section 16-22 Imitation on conviction for multiple offenses.


    When the same conduct of a person may establish the commission of more than one offense he may be prosecuted for each such offense. He may not, however, be convicted of more than one offense if:

    (1)    One offense is included in the other, as defined in section 16-23; or

    (2)    Inconsistent findings of fact are required to establish the commission of the offenses; or

    (3)    The offenses differ only in that one is defined to prohibit a designated kind of conduct generally and the other to prohibit a specific instance of such conduct; or

    (4)    The offense is defined as a continuing course of conduct and the person's course of conduct was uninterrupted, unless the law provides that specific periods of such conduct constitute separate offenses.
