What constitutes a conspiracy?
Conspiracy charges can come about if a group of people are allegedly in
collusion to commit illegal acts in one way or another. If the group of
people were in agreement on the illegal acts, it can be considered conspiracy–however,
if they were independently committing these crimes, it would not be charged
as conspiracy. There are several degrees of conspiracy charges in New York:
- Class B Misdemeanor - Up to 3 months in jail.
- Class I Felony - Less severe than a Class A felony.
- Class A Felony - The most serious form of conspiracy could result in up
to a class A felony, which could result in life imprisonment without parole.
The Penalties for Conspiracy in New York
Conspiracy charges are taken very seriously, and the punishments that are
doled out for such are indicative of this. Depending on the type of crime
that was committed, however, the penalties will vary.
In the event that someone has entered into an agreement with one or more
people to commit any type of crime, however, the charges would be classified
as conspiracy in the sixth degree, which is only a class B misdemeanor.
