What Is A Conspiracy Charge?
A conspiracy charge is a federal charge that means that you agreed with one or more people to commit a crime. You do not have to actually commit the crime to be convicted of conspiracy. The prosecution only has to prove that you had the intent to commit the crime and that you took some steps to carry out the plan.
Potential Penalties For Conspiracy
The penalties for conspiracy can vary depending on the underlying crime. However, conspiracy charges often carry the same penalties as the underlying crime. For example, if you are convicted of conspiring to commit murder, you could be sentenced to life in prison.
Mandatory Minimum Prison Sentences
Some conspiracy charges carry mandatory minimum prison sentences. This means that if you are convicted of the charge, you will have to serve a certain amount of time in prison, regardless of the circumstances of your case. For example, if you are convicted of conspiring to distribute controlled substances, you could be sentenced to a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison.
