CONSPIRACY

Under Colorado law, a person can be held criminally liable for an act they did not physically carry out but helped plan with others, or an act they helped plan with others and also physically carried out.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with conspiracy to commit a crime if, with the required intent, the individual agrees with at least one other person that they, or one or more of them, will commit, attempt to commit, or aid in committing the planned criminal act.

However, a person cannot be convicted of conspiracy to commit a crime unless an overt act in furtherance of that conspiracy is done by the individual or a co-conspirator.

Generally, if a person conspires to commit a felony, he is guilty of a class 6 felony. Generally, if a person conspires to commit a misdemeanor, he is guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor.
