Conspiracy to Violate Drug Laws: Defending a Charge in Arizona


Defined by law, conspiracy is an agreement to accomplish a criminal offense, or to accomplish a lawful objective by criminal means. In order to prove a conspiracy case, officials must gather enough evidence to show that a person was conspiring towards a criminal objective. There are rarely documents or other hard evidence to prove an agreement, so police will generally attempt to observe a person they suspect of selling drugs or to establish surveillance of a location where they believe drugs are being sold.
