State v. Fleming, ___ N.C. App. ___, 786 S.E.2d 760 (Jun. 7, 2016)

The State presented insufficient evidence to show that the defendant entered into an agreement to commit common law robbery. The mere fact that the crime the defendant allegedly conspired with others to commit took place does not, without more, prove the existence of a conspiracy. Lacking here was evidence that the defendant conspired to take the property by violence or fear. In fact, his accomplice’s use of violence or fear was unknown to the defendant until after the robbery was completed.
