Conspiracy Charges fall under:
When two or more people agree to commit a crime and one of them commits an act in furtherance of that agreement.
Basically, this means that if two or more people plan out a crime and at least one of them attempts to commit it, then they can all be charged with conspiracy.
Punishment for Conspiracy Charges
Punishment for conspiracy charges will vary depending on several factors. Some conspiracy charges are pursued as felonies, while still others can be considered “wobblers” (crimes that can be charged as felonies or misdemeanors). In many cases, the penalties for conspiracy charges are based on those associated with the actual crime.
Members of a conspiracy are legally responsible for all crimes committed by co-conspirators leading up to the furtherance of the conspiracy. So, if two people conspire to steal the jewelry from an individual’s home, but are forced to break into the home, tie up the residents and then steal the jewelry, the conspirators will be legally responsible for breaking and entering, assault, and burglary as well as conspiracy.
It should be noted, though, that conspiracy to commit a crime and the actual crime are separate. It is not uncommon for a person to be convicted of conspiracy yet be acquitted of the underlying crime.
Sentencing for conspiracy convictions will depend on the type. Conspiracy to commit a crime against a government official can lead to a maximum of 9 years in prison. If convicted on conspiracy to commit a felony, an individual will receive the sentence associated with that felony. A conviction on conspiracy to commit more than one felony will result in a sentence matching the felony with the most severe sentence.
Misdemeanor conspiracy convictions often include a $10,000 fine and up to a year in county jail.
