Generally, a 'conspiracy' is an agreement between one or more persons to commit an unlawful criminal act.

To prove a defendant guilty of the crime of Conspiracy, the prosecutor must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt:
  1. That the defendant joined in an agreement or plan with one or more persons;
  2. That the purpose of the agreement was to do something criminal or unlawful; or to do something that was not itself criminal or unlawful, by criminal or unlawful means; and
  3. That the defendant joined the conspiracy knowing of the unlawful plan and intended to help carry it out.
If you have been charged with the crime of Conspiracy, you should immediately consult with a Massachusetts Criminal Defense Attorney.
