CONSPIRACY

A person commits the offense of conspiracy if he or she, with the intent to commit an underlying felony, agrees with one or more persons to engage in conduct that would constitute the underlying felony and performs an overt act in furtherance of the agreement. The person must know that the underlying felony will be committed. The person must also agree in advance to aid the commission of the underlying felony. The overt act does not need to be a criminal act in itself.

Disorderly Conduct and Public Intoxication

A person commits the offense of disorderly conduct when he or she knowingly or intentionally engages in an act that is offensive to the public order. Examples of disorderly conduct include using abusive language in a public place, making an offensive gesture in a public place, creating a noxious odor in a public place, making unreasonable noise in a public place, fighting in a public place, or discharging a firearm in a public place.

FALSE STATEMENT TO OBTAIN PROPERTY OR CREDIT

A person commits the offense of a false statement to obtain property or credit when he or she intentionally or knowingly makes a materially false or misleading statement to obtain property or credit on behalf of himself or herself or on behalf of another person. The false or misleading statement must be in writing.

SEARCH & SEIZURE - INVESTIGATIVE STOPs

If a police officer has a reasonable basis for believing that a person is involved in criminal activity or is about to be involved in criminal activity, the officer has a right to make an investigative stop of that person. Another name for an investigative stop is a "Terry Stop," which name is taken from the United States Supreme Court case of Terry v. Ohio. The officer may make the stop even though he or she does not have probable cause for an arrest. The purpose of the stop is to investigate criminal activity and not to make an arrest.
