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.
