New York City Conspiracy Defense Attorney

Brief Overview of Conspiracy Charges

The term "conspiracy" has gained considerable infamy throughout the nation over the years. In truth, the legal definition of this criminal offense is quite simple. Broken down to the bare essentials, it is a criminal act where two or more people agree that they will commit a crime at a later date. Should they make an agreement to work together to break the law, they can be criminally charged with conspiracy.

It is important to note that even if the end goal is perfectly legal, if the defendants were planning to use illicit means, it is still considered conspiracy. The law does not allow for the argument "the ends justify the means." For example, committing theft to raise money for a good cause, regardless of the intentions, is still a crime and if planned in advance, it will still be considered a criminal offense.

What are New York's penalties for conspiracy?

The state of New York is not lenient on criminal charges of conspiracy and will not allow for the convicted to walk away with minor penalties. Per §105 of New York State Law, it is considered to be conspiracy in the sixth degree if the defendant has entered into an agreement with one or more people to engage in conduct that could be classified as a crime. This is classified as a class B misdemeanor; a charge that is added on top of any other criminal charges that has occurred.

Depending on the circumstances of the charge, it is important to realize that the penalties will be elevated. For example, according to §105.17, it is considered to be conspiracy in the first degree for an adult over the legal age of eighteen to enter into an agreement with someone under the age of sixteen to commit class A felony. The conspiracy aspect of this crime is considered to be a class A-I felony.
