What Is Conspiracy?
A conspiracy occurs when two or more people enter an agreement to commit a crime, or accomplish any illegal action against governmental and civil institutions, entities, or individuals. Because there is no limit on the number of individuals participating in a conspiracy, parties may join after the plot has been established, and will be treated as co-conspirators before the law. Important characteristics of a conspiracy are as follows:
- Repentance by one or more parties that does not affect the liability of the conspirators, although it may reduce their sentence.
- Even if the purpose of a conspiracy is to accomplish a humanitarian end through illegal actions, it is still punishable by the law.
- A conspiracy does not have to be planned in secret to be a punishable crime.
- The conspirators may be guilty even if they are not aware of the identities of other parties involved in the conspiracy.
- The criminal offense does not have to be fully executed for a person to be charged with conspiracy.
