The federal and state governments take conspiracy cases very seriously. They will attempt to punish anyone who is involved in a criminal enterprise, no matter how small the role. Charging suspects with conspiracy is a relatively simple way to do this. Proving guilt in a conspiracy case, however, is not as easy.
At The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen, our attorneys are former state and federal prosecutors who know both sides of the criminal justice system. We understand the tactics prosecutors use in conspiracy cases. We can develop strategies to counteract these tactics and expose weaknesses in their case. If you have been charged with conspiracy or other federal crimes, please call our office at 407-246-0066 or 888-390-8937 to schedule an appointment. Corey is also a member of the Federal CJA panel for the Middle District of Florida.
Elements of Conspiracy Charges
A conspiracy is defined as two or more persons entering into an agreement to violate the law. It does not matter if the outcome of that violation would be legal or if the contemplated crime is never committed. Even if you did not commit the actual crime, you may be charged with the crime and any criminal acts that arise from it.
If you are convicted of conspiring to commit a crime, you may face the same penalties as the person who actually committed the crime. It may not matter that the crime was never committed.
Conspiracy charges come in many forms, ranging from white collar crimes to drug crimes, as well as:
- Health care fraud
- Ponzi schemes
- Bank fraud/counterfeiting
- Child pornography
- Internet crimes
- Securities fraud
- Government fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Money laundering
- Bank robbery
The rules of evidence and the trial process in federal court are designed to favor the prosecution. The conspiracy defense lawyer trying your case needs to understand these procedures in order to protect your rights. Our attorneys have the experience you need.
