What Is Considered Criminal Conspiracy?

Under T.C.A. §39-12-103, conspiracy is committed when two or more individuals agree to carry out an illegal offense. It doesn't even matter whether or not the offense is actually committed as long as the involved parties have come together with the intention of organizing and completing a crime. Conspiracy is also known as an incomplete, or inchoate, crime because the intent to break the law may still be punishable regardless of the type of alleged offense.

For example, if two or more people conspired to commit murder, not only would the individual who carried out the act face criminal charges, but also those s/he met and planned with.

Common types of crimes associated with conspiracy charges include distribution of drugs, fraud, embezzlement, theft, and weapons crimes.

Since criminal conspiracy is a complex and often unclear area of the law, it is in your best interests to hire an experienced lawyer to help you build an airtight defense. Call Baker Associates as soon as possible. With a knowledgeable attorney on your side, it will be possible to gather and preserve evidence in your favor.

What Are the Penalties for Conspiracy in Tennessee?

The consequences of a conspiracy conviction will often depend on the alleged offense that is the subject of the conspiracy. For example, if an individual is accused of Class A felony, the conspiracy charge will be classified as a Class B felony. Therefore, the penalties for conspiracy of a crime are the same as those of an offense one classification lower than the actual crime.

If convicted of conspiracy, you could potentially lose years of freedom in prison as well as thousands of dollars in fines. A criminal record can also severely impact your future and ruin your chances of securing a job, qualifying for loans, or even gaining admission to college.
