Conspiracy

The definition of conspiracy is: -

…If a person agrees with any other person or persons that a course of conduct shall be pursued which, if the agreement is carried out in accordance with their intentions, either

(a) Will necessarily amount o or involve the commission of any offence or offences by one or more of the parties to the agreement, or
(b) Would do so but for the existence of facts which render the commission of the offence or any of the offences impossible,
He is guilty of conspiracy to commit the offence or offences in question.

In simple terms the essence of conspiracy is agreement. When two or more agree to carry their criminal scheme into effect, the very plot is the criminal act itself.

You should not face prosecution for an offence of this type without legal representation.

We have a highly trained professional team of lawyers with a wealth of experience in dealing with the most serious of cases.

You need a lawyer you can trust to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

Conspiracy cases are only dealt with in the Crown Court.

It is quite likely that you will face the prospect of a lengthy prison sentence.

Have you been invited to attend a police station? Some of the most important decisions made in relation to a case are made at the police station. If Morton’s solicitors are involved at an early stage of an investigation, we are often able to affect the outcome.

You are not obliged to say anything to the police and we advise all clients to maintain their right to silence until they speak with us.

A case can proceed solely on admissions made to the police without the need for witnesses to ever attend court.
You are entitled to have a solicitor present free of charge at any police interview. This is true for what may seem to be the most trivial offence. You should never be interviewed without legal representation.

Morton’s Solicitors can advise you and provide expert representation. Call us now for immediate advice.
