Texas Conspiracy Offenses
Let Our Bryan & College Station Criminal Defense Lawyers Tirelessly

In Texas, criminal conspiracy is a
white collar crime which occurs when two or more people agree that at least one of them will
engage in conduct with the intent to commit a felony offense, provided
that one or more of the conspiring members commits an act in pursuance
of this agreement. If you are being charged with conspiracy, it is imperative
to obtain legal representation from a skilled lawyer.

Understanding State & Federal Conspiracy Charges
The most important thing to remember is that you can be charged with conspiracy
even if you did not carry out the alleged, intended felony. If the parties
involved in the conspiracy were in agreement and at least one of the members
took some type of action based on this agreement, conspiracy charges can
still be filed.
For example, if you and two other people agree to rob a bank and of the
parties purchased supplies – such as guns, pliers, masks –
for the robbery, you and the others could be charged with conspiracy to
commit a felony. In the event that none of the parties took any overt
action, however, they cannot be charged with conspiracy.
The penalties for a conspiracy conviction depend on whether you were convicted
of a state or federal offense and the severity of the underlying offense
– because the level of the conspiracy charge is fixed at one category
lower than the most serious felony which the conspiracy was about. For
instance, if you are accused of committing a first-degree felony, the
conspiracy charge would be a second-degree felony.
