When two or more people collaborate or plan in an attempt to commit a crime or perform an illegal action, the crime they are committing is known as conspiracy. This may include plans to commit many crimes, including embezzlement, fraud, counterfeiting/forgery and even insurance fraud and drug charges. Conspiracy is a serious white collar crime and can be charged in many cases as a felony crime.
There are two basic specifications that have to be made in order for two or more persons to be charged with conspiracy. First, there must be two or more people who willingly plan to commit a felony crime. Second, one or more of the persons involved must perform an act that pursues the criminal act or furtherance of the agreement.
According to Texas Penal Code Section 15.02, if one person is involved in the conspiracy with the other collaborators but does not perform a part of the crime, it is not an accepted defense to say they did not commit the crime because they were involved with the conspiracy. This means that even if a person is only a partner in the crime without actually committing the crime, they can still be charged due to knowingly being a collaborator of the conspiracy.
Due to the fact that conspiracy alone is a crime, it is not necessary for the prosecution to prove that those charged actually committed the planned crime, only that they conspired to commit the crime. If you have been charged with conspiracy you could face serious criminal penalties that can seriously harm your reputation and even hurt your finances with huge fines.

"When you have been wrongfully accused of having an affair with a student, you must acquire legal counsel before you even speak to the police, even if you are the person who reports the rumors. Tylden Schaeffer advised me to not have a second interview with the police department and found time in his schedule to meet with me that day. After the meeting, I had a path to move forward on and that included a well written statement that Mr. Schaeffer crafted. After submitting this in lieu of a second interview with the police, there were no more problems with the school district or police department. Mr. Schaeffer did a superb job and had me resting more easily following our meetings. I would highly recommend Mr. Schaeffer to anyone in need of a Criminal Defense Attorney." - Anonymous

"Tylden got my felony reduced to a misdemeanor. He saved my life. I didn’t have to pester him for information and updates about my case and his staff is well informed and helpful. He personally attended each and every one of my hearings and was just as concerned about restoring my reputation as I was. He recently got a motion for non-disclosure filed and approved by the judge so I will never have to admit this mistake ever happened. I would recommend Tylden to anyone! He is a highly intelligent and competent attorney. The Best!" - Anonymous
"I was represented by Mr. Shaeffer years ago (2004). He would travel from San Antonio all the way to Del Rio to represent me. My father and I were accused of wrong doing by federal agents and we had done nothing. We, my father and I were on trial simultaneously. We had hired an attorney and found out later he was friends with the prosecutor and wanted us to accept a plea bargain. “We did nothing wrong”, I cried to him. He insisted that we accept due to it being impossible to beat the Government. My father and I were close to giving up when we met Mr. Shaeffer. Mr. Shaeffer believed in us and fought for us. Because of him, I never saw prison walls nor was I ever away from my family. It was one of the most difficult times in my life, but thankfully we met a Godsend attorney and justice prevailed." - Anonymous
