Drug charges go beyond possession, distribution and trafficking in controlled substances. Often the Commonwealth will bring conspiracy charges. In order to prove conspiracy to violate the controlled substances act, the Commonwealth must prove:
- An agreement or plan with one or more persons;
- The purpose of the agreement or plan to do something unlawful; &
- Joining in on the conspiracy knowing of the unlawful plan with the intention to help carry it out.
If you find yourself facing a conpsiracy allegation, it is important to note that the penalty is the same as the underlying offense that is the object of the conspiracy.
