Criminal Conspiracy Charges in Las Vegas – More of an Issue than you may Think

A Concealed Motive Defines Criminal Conspiracy 

Criminal Conspiracy is more involved in crimes in Las Vegas than you think, but it is often ignored when concealed by other charges. The definition of this charge is found In NRS 199.480, which states that a conspiracy is an agreement between two individuals to commit any of the following crimes: murder, robbery, arson, kidnapping, racketeering or sexual assault.

This statute also states that it is considered criminal conspiracy whether the act is legal or illegal. If there is a criminal purpose or motive behind the act that is being committed, it is punishable by law and can lead to severe punishment.

If you have been charged with criminal conspiracy, you could be tried and found guilty of a category B felony, which requires incarceration for one to six years in prison. If the alleged offense was a conspiracy to commit murder, the one charged could be found guilty of a category B felony, and the penalty would include a prison sentence of two to ten years and/or a $5,000 fine.
