What Penalties Could I Be Facing If Convicted?
The state allows for a conspirator in a felony crime to face the same penalties as the perpetrator. When there have been several felonies committed and a single charge of conspiracy, state law mandates the penalty imposed must be for the most serious of the crimes. Crimes filed in various degrees allow for the accused to be charged with different degrees of the crime, except in the case of conspiracy to commit murder, in which case the defendant will be charged with first degree murder.
Punishment can include the following:
- Years behind bars in state prison
- Fines as high as $10,000
- Up to $25,000 for conspiracy to commit identity theft
If it is believed you conspired in the criminal act, you will face charges equal to those filed against the perpetrator of the crime. The consequences of a conviction could be devastating.
Proving the Crime of Conspiracy: The Standard
In order to prove a person is guilty of conspiracy, the prosecutor must establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed one or more overt acts that contributed to the commission of the felony crime. In cases in which it is alleged that the defendant is an active participant in any street gang and has willfully promoted, furthered, assisted or has benefited from any criminal conduct undertaken by that gang, the individual can be charged with conspiracy and subject to more severe punishments than other conspiracy crimes.
