A conspiracy is an agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime at some point in the future. To be convicted of this crime it must be proved that an agreement existed between at least two people in which they intended to commit a criminal offence. These offences can include, but are not limited to:
- Money laundering
- Importation or supply of drugs
If you are accused of conspiring to commit an offence, you do not need to have actually carried out the offence which was planned, the crime here is making the plan in the first place.
Conspiracy is a serious offence that can only be heard in the Crown Court in which you can face a possible prison sentence if found guilty.
In order to properly defend somebody accused of conspiring to commit an offence, evidence from mobile phones, computers and bank accounts often needs to be analysed alongside various technical sources of evidence submitted by the police.
