An Added Charge That Carries Hefty Penalties

In federal court, nearly each crime involves a conspiracy count. Conspiracy charges frequently run concurrent with types of federal crimes such as:

  • Fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Mail order fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Computer fraud
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Money laundering
  • Drug crimes
  • RICO crimes

It is not uncommon for the conspiracy charge to impact 30 to 50 people, or even more. A person can be charged with conspiracy even if they do not have full knowledge of the crime or have not been involved with the crime since its inception. If you join with or establish an ongoing criminal activity, you can be charged with federal conspiracy.

Additionally, you can be responsible for what others in the conspiracy did, even without you knowing. The federal court uses strict mandatory sentencing guidelines.

Act Quickly To Fight Charges

If convicted on federal charges, including conspiracy charges, you could face a lengthy prison sentence. In building a strong defense on your behalf, I can minimize your involvement in the crime and thereby minimize your exposure for sentencing.
