What Are Florida Conspiracy Crimes?

Conspiracy occurs when two or more people make criminal plans. As mentioned above, a person can receive conspiracy charges without ever carrying out the crime they’re accused of planning. Despite not actually acting on a plan, a person can receive severe federal punishments if convicted of certain types of conspiracy charges.

Conspiracy charges can involve any criminal offense, including:

According to Florida law, a conspiracy to commit a crime is only ranked one level below conviction for the crime itself. There are, however, some crimes where the conspiracy is listed separately and may be considered as severe as had the crime be committed. For example, it is considered to be just a serious to conspire as to commit a crime related to drug trafficking, bookmaking, murder, or causing aggravated abuse to cattle or horses.

These are considered "inchoate" offenses, meaning they are not fully developed, but may be punished as if they had been fully completed. Inchoate means that something has just begun or is not fully developed. When a criminal act is planned extensively, someone can receive conspiracy charges.

How Do Prosecutors Use Tampa Conspiracy Charges?

While prosecutors can use conspiracy charges to convict a person of a crime, they’ll also use them to extract more information from someone in a case. For example, if someone is accused of a committing murder but a prosecutor needs more evidence against them, they might charge someone suspected to be associated with the crime with conspiracy. Doing this can help a prosecutor give a person who might have information about a crime incentive to share it in exchange for a modified sentence.
