If you discuss robbing a bank with someone, but do nothing else, that is not a conspiracy.

But if you discuss it and then write down plans on how to do it, that’s a legally defined conspiracy – even if your plans are never carried out.

So it’s important to understand, if you have a conspiracy charge against you, it is not necessary for the prosecution to prove that your planned crime was actually committed. It’s not even necessary for the prosecution to prove you knew all the details of the plan. To convict you, it is enough to prove that you voluntarily agreed to join the planning of an illegal act. The planning is the crime.
