When two or more people agree to commit a crime, it may be defined as conspiracy by state and/or federal law enforcement officials. One common type of conspiracy is “drug conspiracy,” which would be the agreement of two or more people to make, sell, transport and/or distribute drugs.
Conspiracy is an offense that is separate from the illegal act itself and may carry additional penalties.

Experienced El Paso Drug Crimes Lawyers
When a prosecutor pursues conspiracy charges, it is not necessary to prove that the offender was present or involved with every stage of the illegal act or knew all of the details. It is enough to show that there was an agreement to participate or an intention to further the plan. A person may have only had a small role and may still be able to be convicted on the conspiracy charge.
