DEFENDING FEDERAL CONSPIRACY CHARGES
Facing a federal criminal investigation can be intimidating and unsettling. These fears can become even worse if the authorities charge you with conspiracy to commit a crime which can enable them to greatly increase the scope of conduct presented to a jury. A conspiracy to commit a federal crime happens whenever there is an agreement by two or more people to commit a specific federal crime, and, depending on the type of conspiracy, may require that at least one of those people make some overt act to further the conspiracy. A conspiracy can be an informal arrangement or a formal agreement to commit a crime.
Due to the severity of penalties involved, it is important to understand what constitutes conspiracy and how an experienced federal conspiracy lawyer can help protect those charged and/or mitigate the impact of charges.
