Criminal Conspiracy Questions

What is a Conspiracy?

In criminal law, a conspiracy is a contract between two or more people to commit a crime or to accomplish a legal end by illegal actions. An example of this type of crime is planning a bank robbery (illegal act) to give money to a charity (a legal end). Not all conspiracies are planned in secret yet they are still a crime. An everyday transaction can be tainted by corruption. An example would be a car salesman selling a used car as new. They could be prosecuted for the crime of fraud and conspiracy, plus any purchaser of a vehicle would be able to sue for damages for the fraud and conspiracy.

Is there a civil remedy for conspiracy to kidnap? Are there guidelines? What is the statute of limitations to file?

Yes, there is. False imprisonment is identified as the civil equivalent of kidnapping in Missouri. False imprisonment stands for restrained with no lawful justification. Hyatt v. Trans World Airlines, Inc., 943 SW 2d 292 - Mo: Court of Appeals, Eastern Dist. 5th Div. 1997. The statute of limitations is normally two years under Missouri Revised Statutes Chapter 516.

Can conspiracy to commit murder charges be brought up, on someone if the trial for the murderer has already finished?

Seems like the individual is considering the circumstances where a single defendant is found guilty of killing someone and additional un-prosecuted defendants might be guilty as co-conspirators. The end of the trial of the killer will not prevent prosecution of the co-conspirators. Since the co-conspirators in the past have not been put on trial, there is no "double jeopardy" or any extra regulations of law that will prohibit them from being put on trial based on the guilty verdict of a different person.

If a felony conviction for a marijuana conspiracy charge did not carry a sentence of 1 year or over, can second amendments rights, be restored in the state of AL?

Whether a year or not, given that this would be a federal felony, it is not possible to reinstate the individual’s 2nd Amendment rights as the ATF's division that controls appeals for reinstatement has not been funded since the early 1990’s. Short of a presidential pardon, the individual’s rights could not be reinstated.

What is range of prison terms for conspiracy charge for distribution of ecstasy?

The distribution or conspiracy to distribute under the US code is punishable by 0-20 years in prison with an average sentence being 18 months to 72 months depending on prior record.

Is there jail time with one count to conspiracy to commit robbery in the state of PA?

Yes, the offense is punishable by jail/prison. Many factors are considered during sentencing, facts surrounding the charge, the person’s involvement and any prior criminal record. A first time offender and if the facts are minor in nature, it’s possible that a probationary sentence can be imposed.

There are times that you need answers to your tough questions — questions that may be too sensitive for you to consult a friend or co-worker. Sometimes, you may want to discuss your issues with a neutral party who is experienced in the legal area that you are dealing with. If you are having issues with criminal conspiracy or just need answers to your questions pertaining to a criminal conspiracy you can ask Experts. Experts answer many of the legal questions related to a criminal conspiracy in an efficient and knowledgeable manner.

Recent Conspiracy Questions

  • Relatiing to Rhode Island: My son, who is 18 years old,

    Relatiing to Rhode Island:
    My son, who is 18 years old, was one of 3 people in a car that was broken down on the side of the highway in Rhode Island. A RI State Trooper stopped to see what was going on, and the Trooper ended up searching the vehicle and the 3 occupants.
    The Troop found no drugs on my son, but, did find a small amount of hash oil and a butane torch in the car. For whatever the reason, the State Troop ends up charging two of the 3 with conspiracy to sell, manufacture schedule I and II, and procession of MDMA (Schedule IV). The mdma was allegedly found on a lollipop in the car that was purchased in Rhode Island at some fair. The other person was charge with simple procession.
    Anyway, again no drugs or paraphernalia was found on my son, and the car belongs to one of the other two. My son can be honest to a fault and did state that he owned part of the small amount of hash oil. (less than 1 gram).
    1) They were held for more than 4hrs without being allowed to use the phone to call someone. Is that legal?
    2) I went to the State Trooper barracks where my son was being held and I was denied access to my son, and I was told I could see him at the arraignment in court later that day. Is that legal?
    3) The police log on the Rhode Island government website states my son had the simple procession, but, in court, during the arraignment, they say he was one of the two being charged with conspiracy to sell, manufacture, and procession of mda. This is concerning. If this is incorrect, what else is!!
    Can any of this help my son?
  • During a civil proceeding for assault and battery it came to

    During a civil proceeding for assault and battery it came to light that the weapon used in the attack was supplied by the defendants employer. Can I bring criminal charges against the employer also for complicity or/conspiracy or something similar?
  • My property has been vandalized and broken into. I want to

    My property has been vandalized and broken into. I want to file charges against the people responsible to recoup the cost of repairs for the damages. There are 11 18 year olds so far. I have pictures of them in my home on the date of the incident from postings on public websites. What Mass. laws have they violated besides trespassing, malicious mischief, etc.
    Thank you for your response.
