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

  • Recently I was sentenced to 78 months federal time for conspiracy

    Recently I was sentenced to 78 months federal time for conspiracy to obtain and deliver over 50 grams of methamphetamine. However, I was asked to review my PSI which indicated that my co-defendant had drastically inflated the amount of product that was provided which raised the offense level of my case even though I had also proffered the accurate amounts. The difference being her version of 75 ounces and my version being 15.75 ounces. I see nowhere in the PSI where these amounts were confirmed or investigated in any way to determine the amount. The only actual amount was the amount that I was in possession of which was 101.94 grams. Any remaining amounts were from pure speculation of the offenders. I do, however, have some supporting evidence that my amounts were more correct such as weights of FedEx packages and the proffer also coincides with FedEx records. Can the agents just go by her word to determine quantity, because I know they will find only evidence of my lower amounts which they seemed to dismiss. I spoke with my attorney concerning this and was very concerned and any objections were due the next day. For some reason the objection on the amounts was withrawn. Because of the large quantity my co-defendant presented, which is totally inaccurate, I am facing a much harsher sentence. What applies to the validity of using her proffer with no evidence to back it up? I know for certain they will not be able to verify these amounts because they did not happen.
  • For Law Educator... Hi again. This question is in regards

    For Law Educator...
    Hi again. This question is in regards ***** ***** and 1985 lawsuit which I plan soon to file in federal court.
    For my 1985 claim I plan to sue a state entity: the DA's office (and also the Police department). Looking long term it may be possible also that inside this conspiracy claim I include as parties: a head DA, and a judge.
    Just to make sure...since these are constitutional-based claims made in federal court, I was not required by C.R.S. §24-10-109 to have filed a notice with the state attorney general to be granted permission to sue these entities, right? Even though I did not file that notice and the time has since expired I can still name the DA's office in my 1985 federal claim, right?
    Also when I do make service...will I have to serve a copy of my complaint and summons (which includes that claim against the DA's office) upon the state attorney general?
  • Ok before my husband plea guilty to the charges that were on

    Ok before my husband plea guilty to the charges that were on him the lawyer told him he had lots of points and after a couple of months the lawyer said that everything was looking better and that my husband was looking at way lesser points lesser time so my husband went to court he plead guilty to the charges now the lawyer comes back with the psi is nothing to what the lawyer said had changed but for the worst my husband still looking at the same time he was looking at from the beginning so my husband hasn't gotten sentenced for the time he's gonna be there but he rather go to trial now my question is can he go to trial after he pleaded guilty to the charges or what can he do we live in houston tx
