What can I do?
Conspiracy is an interesting criminal charge because it can relate back to pretty much any other crime, so long as the crime was allegedly committed by at least two people acting in congress. The foundation for a charge of conspiracy could involve drugs, prostitution, framing another person, counterfeiting, burglary, and various types of fraud.
