Default Conspiracy to bring contraband in a tdcj facility

My husband was changed with conspiracy to bring contraband in a tdcj facility. The have phone conversations stating this but nothing was ever brought in. They charged him with a felony. How can they do that when nothing took place. And if they can how much time could they add on.

‘Conspiracy’ means they had a plan to bring in contraband. If he actually DID bring it in it wouldn’t be a conspiracy charge. A phone call is all the proof they need.

If he has been charged with a free-world charge as opposed to simply a disciplinary offense report alleging a violation of the Texas Penal Code, then he conspired to commit a third-degree felony. Conspiracy drops the offense one level for punishment purposes. However, ALL prior felony convictions including the current conviction are fair game for enhancement purposes.

So...without knowing how many prior felony convictions he has, it is difficult to say whether he is looking simply at third-degree punishment (stacked upon the present sentence) or whether there are additional levels that will be available.

And yes, they have EVERYTHING on the phone calls, to include the Securus voiceover greetings. Those will be available to the Grand Jury as well as the jury if the case goes to trial.

Is this related to the incident where he had pills after visitation? If so, that is more than just a phone conversation. If it isn't related, it will show a pattern that can affect the current situation negatively.

In criminal law, a conspiracy is a plot or agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime at some time in the future. If there was a phone conversation planning to bring in contraband then that is the evidence of conspiracy.

What we would say in the UK "Its a fair Cop Gov". ie you got us fair and square,
