By California state law, conspiracy is defined as two or more people planning and working together to commit a crime (also known as criminal conspirators). They must also take some sort of action toward its completion, but whether or not the crime was actually committed is irrelevant in the charges for conspiracy. Conspiring to accuse or frame someone for a crime also qualifies as conspiracy.

If you have been accused of being a criminal conspiracy, you could be facing an extensive prison sentence and heavy fines – the same sentence that you would face if you had actually committed the felony.
