How Do Federal Conspiracy Charges Work?


If you or a loved one is facing federal conspiracy charges, you are not alone. Federal conspiracy is one of the most frequently faced federal crimes. Prosecutors often bring these charges for strategic reasons, as it allows them to introduce a larger body of evidence that makes it easier to get convictions. They can use this tactic in many different kinds of cases, including drug cases, fraud cases, violent crime cases and more. The problem with this approach is that many people who are allegedly involved in minor ways are dragged into a case and can be punished very harshly. If you’re facing federal conspiracy charges, a skilled federal attorney can help you prove your innocence and/or earn you the best outcome possible.

What is Federal Conspiracy?

Conspiracy is a broad charge that can be difficult to defend against. In the simplest terms, conspiracy is planning to commit a crime and taking steps towards implementing that plan without actually doing anything illegal. It involves two or more individuals making an agreement to commit a federal offense, and one of the individuals committing an act to further the conspiracy. There does not have to be a written agreement or even any interaction whatsoever, but simply evidence that two or more people have been working together in some way to later commit a crime. The statue that outlines this crime states that it is illegal to conspire to defraud the United State of America, as well as to conspire to break any federal law. Because this charge is rather vague, the government often uses it as a means of netting many different illegal behaviors.

One of the major flaws with conspiracy charges is that the two people conspiring together may receive the same punishment, regardless of how involved they were in the crime. For example, someone who had a very small role may receive the same punishment as someone who played a very large part in the illegal activity. This is especially common in drug cases, where defendants may be subject to a mandatory minimum for all of the drugs involved. If you’re caught up in conspiracy charges, it’s crucial that you contact a skilled defense attorney as soon as possible. He or she will review the details of your case and work to develop a plan of action. The sooner you can get connected with a qualified defense lawyer, the better.
