Defense Against Conspiracy Charges

You Could Be Charged Even If You Did Not Commit A Crime

Criminal charges of conspiracy may occur in connection with any type of alleged crime. Law enforcement agents, investigators and/or a prosecutor may believe that you collaborated with another person or other people in the planning of a crime. In this case, you may be charged with conspiracy.

Examples of Conspiracy

Examples of conspiracy charges may arise from allegations such as:

  • Plans to manufacture or distribute banned substances (illegal drugs or prescription drugs obtained without a proper prescription)
  • Plans by one spouse to have a "hit man" murder the other spouse
  • Plans to commit arson in order to collect on property insurance
  • Plans to rob someone or burglarize a home or business
  • Plans to commit financial crimes (white collar crimes such as fraud)

Conspiracy charges are especially common in criminal cases at the federal government level. They are able to implicate more people and have a bigger impact by accusing associates of conspiracy crimes.

There Are Serious Penalties for Criminal Convictions

If you did not actually commit any of the criminal acts in question, but helped plan them, a conspiracy conviction can bring serious penalties. You may incur essentially the same penalties that you would have received if you had actually taken part in the crime in question.

With a knowledgeable and aggressive criminal defense lawyer on your side, you will stand your best chance of mounting a strong defense. Your attorney can remind the prosecutor of the need to prove that you took overt steps to develop and put into motion a plan to commit a criminal offense. Without such proof, your case may be dismissed or charges may be reduced.
