Conspiracy Charges Defense

Criminal law in South Carolina can be complicated. For example, in some cases it takes little more than your participation in a conversation, and suddenly you are guilty of a crime known as conspiracy.

My name is Cameron Blazer. At Blazer Law Firm, I serve the Charleston-area community with client-focused criminal defense. Contact me for an attorney who will be 100 percent committed to the best interests of you and your family.

What Is Criminal Conspiracy?

If you have been charged with conspiracy, you probably have a lot of questions. Under South Carolina law, a criminal conspiracy is formed when at least two people:

  1. Agree to commit a crime, and
  2. Take some action toward that goal

The agreement need not have been explicit, such as a hand shake, but there must be evidence by the actions of the defendants that they had "guilty minds." An example would be planning another meeting to discuss the planned crime further.

The further action does not have to be much. It could be as little as making a phone call or buying a weapon. Even if the conspirators change their minds later and the crime never takes place, they could still be charged with conspiracy.
