Hackintoshing is not illegal, provided you own a legal copy of OS X. In fact, having a pirated copy of Windows is much worse from a legal point of view.
At most, it is breach of EULA, which is a private contract between Apple and you. The legal status of EULAs varies from country to country.
In any case, keep in mind that you can't be sent to prison and that breach of EULA has nothing to do with the police (it is not a criminal offence).
