Conspiracy to sell drugs in Maricopa County is charged when the state believes a person committed conspiracy by intending to promote or aid the commission of an offense, such person agrees with one or more persons that at least one of them or another person will engage in conduct constituting the offense and one of the parties commits an overt act in furtherance of the offense...ARS 13-1003A
The problem with conspiracy cases is that a person who made one simple phone call and had nothing else to do with the sale or transportation of the drugs is just as responsible as the ring leader. Because that one person's name appeared during a wiretap, that person will also be charged with conspiracy to sell drugs. This means that even if a person never sold drugs and never even saw the drugs they can still be charged with conspiracy to sell the drugs.
