Conspiracies occur when two or more persons enter into an
agreement to violate the law, even if the outcome of that violation would be
legal. Title 18 of the United States Code outlaws conspiracy. Conspiracies are
viewed as extremely serious crimes, even if the contemplated crime is not
ultimately committed, and federal penalties include up to five years in federal
prison. For example, conspiring to murder another person can get you into as
much trouble as actually committing murder.
Though conspiracy charges are taken quite seriously, most state laws prevent conspiracy charges from being pursued if no actions were taken to carry out the conspiracy. Different conspiracies include intent to defraud the United States or kill a police officer; intent to manufacture or possess drugs or activities associated with organized crime, such as money laundering. The agency which prosecutes a conspiracy charge is determined by the nature of the claim – it may be the FBI, DEA or another federal or state agency. Given both the complexity and severity of conspiracy charges, it is strongly recommended that those dealing with a conspiracy case consult with an attorney who is both competent and experienced in the ins and outs of conspiracy law.
