Colorado Conspiracy - Easy to Get Charged

When a person engages in the planning or commission of a crime, they can be charged with Conspiracy in Colorado. To be charged, a person must also have done an "overt act" in furtherance of the conspiracy. This overt act can be committed by either conspirator in Jefferson or Denver County - either the helper in planning the crime or the person who later committed the crime himself. Read Here About a Real Life Example of Conspiracy.

The Definition of Conspiracy to Commit a Crime

Conspiracy is defined at C.R.S. 18-2-201, as follows:

A person commits conspiracy to commit a crime if, with the intent to promote or facilitate its commission, he agrees with another person or persons that they, or one or more of them, will engage in conduct which constitutes a crime or an attempt to commit a crime, or he agrees to aid the other person or persons in the planning or commission of a crime or of an attempt to commit such crime.

Most every crime is susceptible to being charged as a Conspiracy. Whether in Arapahoe, Adams or Douglas County, crimes committed with others generally result in Conspiracy or Accessory charges. And, a person is more likely to get caught, because if one person is arrested by police, they will be offered a plea bargain if they identify every other person involved in the crimes' commission.

If police contact you regarding a crime you had any knowledge of, even if you did not commit the crime itself, remain silent. Police are exploring your relationship to the case and it takes very little to be charged with Complicity.
