The first stage in a conspiracy, according to federal law, is for a person to discuss committing a crime with one or more other people. The plan becomes a conspiracy and can be punished as such the moment one of those individuals takes action to commit the crime.
Remember that the action that individual took to commit the crime need not have been unlawful in and of itself. In fact, the defendant facing a conspiracy accusation need not have taken part in the alleged plot at all. Think of this illustration: You and a friend spoke about robbing a bank. You talked about the intricacies of the scheme, which involved rope. You may be accused of conspiracy if that friend later went and bought rope for the robbery.
Conspiracy has serious repercussions that can be severe
The exact punishments meted out for a conspiracy conviction will typically change depending on how serious the offense was. For instance, if someone is accused of conspiring to commit rape, they can expect that their accusation will be a felony as rape is a crime. If more than one crime was committed in the case at hand, the most serious of the offenses will certainly receive the harshest punishment.
On the other hand, take into account an allegation of fraud conspiracy. The prosecution could choose to charge you with a felony or a misdemeanor in that situation. The repercussions could range from being trivial to having a profound impact on your life, depending on how you are charged and the strength of the evidence against you. In either case, you require an accomplished lawyer on your side. Chambers Law Firm is what you need.
