The New York conspiracy laws are codified in penal code Article 105. Under New York law, a person is guilty of the most basic form of “conspiracy” when “with the intent that the conduct constituting a crime be performed, he or she agrees with one or more persons to engage in or cause the performance of such conduct.”
Just like with federal conspiracy laws, if the government is accusing someone of a conspiracy, it must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that one of the conspirators committed an “overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy.”
The basic gist of the way the law works in New York courts is the degree of conspiracy increases as the severity of the underlying conduct increases.
Just like U.S. Attorney Offices throughout the county, New York state prosecutors are aggressively pursuing conspiracy charges. Conspiracy accusations have the potential to be very serious.
