A conspiracy charge does not have to involve the commitment of a crime. Rather, conspiracy involves two or more people agreeing to perpetrate a crime and doing so with an intent to carry out the crime. Again, whether the illegal act is carried out will not stop the prosecution from charging you with conspiracy.
A person accused of conspiracy may also be facing other charges like money laundering and drug charges in Florida. Since it is a derivative crime, the crime you are accused of committing, or at least conspiring to commit, affects how you are charged for conspiracy. A drug arrest may mean multiple charges.
For example, selling or delivering cocaine is charged as a second-degree felony with a level 5 severity ranking. For conspiracy to sell or deliver cocaine, the Miami defendant is charged with second-degree felony, but with a level 4 severity ranking. A second-degree felony conviction can lead to a sentence of up to 15 years in prison.
