What is conspiracy
Generally, conspiracy is when more than one person agrees to do something that is a criminal offence. This can include getting together with a friend to vandalise a building or deciding to rob a bank with a group of people.
The prosecution has to prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
- There was an agreement between you and at least one other person;
- The agreement related to you all committing an offence;
- You and at least one other person intended to commit the offence; and
- You and at least one other person believed that the facts and circumstances would be in place for you to commit the offence.
You can be charged with both conspiracy to commit a crime and the actual crime itself.
