What is Conspiracy?
Conspiracy involves an agreement – whether it is written or verbally
agreed upon – made by two or more people or parties to commit or
try to commit a criminal offense. This type of offense is typically charged
along with other federal crimes, such as
tax fraud, or even
However, it is not enough to be convicted of conspiracy by only reaching
an agreement with multiple parties. A co-conspirator must commit an “overt
act” to move the conspiracy forward. For example, a person purchases
a gun and a ski mask to be used in a robbery.
What are the Penalties for Conspiracy?
A conviction for conspiracy is punishable by a maximum prison term of five
years and/or a fine of up to $250,000 for each count. Yet, many conspirators
face the same exact penalties as defendants that committed the underlying
substantive crime. For instance, a conviction for conspiracy involving
racketeering can carry a sentence of imprisonment of up to 20 years, exactly
the same penalties as a conviction for racketeering. Contact the expereinced
