Conspiracy to Manufacture
In the State of Florida, any person who conspires, agrees, or colludes with others to commit an offense at a later date commits criminal conspiracy.
Any agreement between parties to commit an offense qualifies as criminal conspiracy, regardless of whether or not any actions were carried out to further the offense. All the State must prove is that there was an agreement between parties to commit an offense, and that the parties involved intended to commit an offense or to cause it to be committed by some other party.
Being caught up with the wrong crowd should not warrant a lengthy prison sentence. The state needs to prove that the accused made an agreement with other parties to commit a criminal offense. Simply having knowledge or minimal involvement in the criminal activities of others does not meet the legal standard.

Conspiracy to Manufacture Crimes under Florida Law
§893.149 of Florida code states: (1) It is unlawful for any person to knowingly or intentionally:
- Possess a listed chemical with the intent to unlawfully manufacture a controlled substance;
- Possess or distribute a listed chemical knowing, or having reasonable cause to believe, that the listed chemical will be used to unlawfully manufacture a controlled substance.
In order to sustain a charge of conspiracy to manufacture, the state must prove that there was an agreement between two or more parties to manufacture a controlled substance. Simple involvement or knowledge of an offense is not enough.
This is a very high bar for the state to meet. Even if you were involved in the commission of an offense, minimal involvement is not enough to constitute a conspiracy.
