Methamphetamine Conspiracy Under Illinois Statute 720 ILCS 646/65

A person engages in a Methamphetamine Conspiracy when the person intends to violate one or more provisions of the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act with one or more persons and the person or any party to the agreement commits an act in furtherance of the agreement.

A person convicted of engaging in a Methamphetamine Conspiracy shall face the penalty for the offense that is the object of the conspiracy and may be held accountable for the cumulative weight of any methamphetamine, substance containing methamphetamine, methamphetamine precursor, or substance containing methamphetamine precursor attributable to the conspiracy for the duration of the conspiracy.

It is not a defense to a methamphetamine conspiracy charge that the person or persons with whom the person charged is alleged to have conspired have not been prosecuted or convicted, have been acquitted, have been convicted of a different offense, are not amenable to justice, or lacked the capacity to commit the offense.

When any person is convicted of engaging in a Methamphetamine Conspiracy, the following shall be subject to forfeiture to the State of Illinois: the receipts the person obtained in the conspiracy and any of the person’s interests in, claims against, receipts from, or property or rights of any kind affording a source of influence over, the conspiracy. the circuit court may enter such injunctions, restraining orders, directions, or prohibitions, or take such other actions, including the acceptance of satisfactory performance bonds, in connection with any property, claim, receipt, right, or other interest subject to forfeiture as it deems proper.
