(A) It shall be unlawful for any person to conspire with any other person or persons to commit a violation of the terms of this code. A person shall be deemed guilty of conspiracy with another person or other persons to commit a violation of this code if, with the purpose of promoting or facilitating its commission, he or she:
(1) Agrees with the other person or persons that they or one or more of them will engage in conduct which constitutes the violation or an attempt or solicitation to commit the violation; or
(2) Agrees to aid the other person or persons in the planning or commission of the violation or of an attempt or solicitation to commit the violation.
(B) If a person guilty of conspiracy, as defined herein, knows that a person with whom he or she conspires to commit a violation of this code has conspired with another person or persons to commit the same violation, then he or she is guilty of conspiring with the other person or persons, whether or not he or she knows their identity, to commit the violation.
(C) If a person conspires to commit a number of violations of this code, then he or she is guilty of only one conspiracy so long as the multiple violations are the object of the same agreement or continuous conspiratorial relationship.
(D) No person may be convicted of a conspiracy to commit a violation of this code unless an overt act in pursuance of the conspiracy is alleged and proved to have been done by him or her by a person with whom he or she conspired.
(E) It is an affirmative defense that the actor, after conspiring to commit a violation of this code thwarted the success of the conspiracy, under circumstances manifesting a complete and voluntary renunciation of his or her purpose to cause or cooperate in a violation of this code.
(F) It is immaterial to the liability of a person who conspires with another to commit a violation of this code that:
(1) He or she or the person with whom he or she conspires does not occupy a particular position or have a particular position or have a particular characteristic which is an element of the violation, if he or she believes that one of them does; or
(2) The person with whom he or she conspires is irresponsible or has an immunity to prosecution or conviction for the commission of the violation.
(G) It shall not be a defense to prosecution or liability under this section that any or all of the actions, conversations or communications necessary or instrumental to the planning, formation or perfection of any conspiracy to violate this code occurred at a location outside of the jurisdiction of the city.
