The basic definition of the crime of conspiracy is an agreement between two or more people to do an unlawful act or to do a lawful act by an unlawful means. The crime of conspiracy is the agreement and it does not matter if the plan was successful or if any steps were actually taken to carry out the plan. However, it is not enough that a person merely knows about a conspiracy or is associated with conspirators. To be guilty of a conspiracy a person must actually join a conspiracy as something that he/she desires to bring about.
In conspiracy cases the government often utilizes a wide range of crime investigation tools and techniques. It is not unusual to see telephone wiretaps, global positioning devices placed on automobiles, searches of cell phone records and internal memories and searches of personal computers. These methods of investigation frequently raise privacy and constitutional search and seizure issues which must be vigorously pursued to mount a successful defense to drug conspiracy charges.
