If you are facing criminal conspiracy allegations, it's imperative to seek immediate legal assistance from our dedicated team of experienced lawyers at BKP Solicitors. With years of expertise in defending individuals accused of criminal conspiracy offences, we are committed to safeguarding your rights and achieving the best possible outcome for your case.

Understanding Criminal Conspiracy Offences

Criminal conspiracy involves an agreement between two or more individuals to commit a criminal act. Unlike other crimes, conspiracy charges focus on the planning rather than the execution of the crime itself. Under the Criminal Law Act 1977, the act of agreeing to commit a crime constitutes the offence of conspiracy.

Conspiracy charges are serious and can result in severe penalties. Even individuals involved in planning a crime, but not directly carrying it out, may face similar punishment to the physical perpetrators. As indictable only offences, conspiracy cases require expert legal representation to navigate the complexities of the law and pursue a favourable outcome.

Types of Criminal Conspiracy Offences

  • Conspiracy to Defraud: Involves conspiring to dishonestly defraud another individual or entity.
  • Conspiracy to Commit Robbery: Includes planning or assisting in the commission of a robbery, regardless of direct involvement in the act.
  • Conspiracy to Commit Burglary: Involves planning or aiding in the commission of burglary, such as assisting burglars or planning the crime.
  • Conspiracy to Rape: Occurs when individuals conspire to commit the offence of rape, including planning or facilitating the crime.
  • Conspiracy to Murder: Involves planning with others to kill a person, regardless of whether the crime is carried out.
  • Conspiracy to Pervert the Course of Justice: Includes conspiring to obstruct justice in criminal proceedings, such as providing false evidence or intimidating witnesses.

Legal Assistance When Arrested

If arrested on suspicion of a criminal conspiracy offence, it's crucial to exercise your right to legal representation.
