Under California law, Penal Code 182 PC is the statute defining criminal Conspiracy. This section makes it a crime for an individual to agree with one or more persons to commit a crime, and to commit an act to further that agreement.
Some conspiracies are charged as felonies. Others can be charged as misdemeanors, depending on the facts of the case. Common legal defenses include having no agreement between the parties in question, committing no overt act, and/or withdrawing from the conspiracy.
