Alexandria Conspiracy Attorneys
Federal Laws on Conspiracy
If you have been accused of being involved in a federal crime, not only do face charges for the alleged criminal offense, but you could also be charged with planning with others to commit the crime. This type of action is known as “conspiracy” and it is often associated with other federal offenses.
If you or a loved one are facing serious federal charges, including conspiracy, you do not have to go through the legal process alone. With 26 years of top-notch experience, our Alexandria conspiracy defense lawyers at Bynum & Jenkins Law has extensive knowledge of state and federal criminal laws to guide you through the complexities of the criminal justice system and fight for the most favorable result.
What is Conspiracy?
Conspiracy involves an agreement – whether it is written or verbally agreed upon – made by two or more people or parties to commit or try to commit a criminal offense. This type of offense is typically charged along with other federal crimes, such as drug distribution, tax fraud, or even RICO.
However, it is not enough to be convicted of conspiracy by only reaching an agreement with multiple parties. A co-conspirator must commit an “overt act” to move the conspiracy forward. For example, a person purchases a gun and a ski mask to be used in a robbery.
What Are the Penalties for Conspiracy?
A conviction for conspiracy is punishable by a maximum prison term of five years and/or a fine of up to $250,000 for each count. Yet, many conspirators face the same exact penalties as defendants that committed the underlying substantive crime. For instance, a conviction for conspiracy involving racketeering can carry a sentence of imprisonment of up to 20 years, exactly the same penalties as a conviction for racketeering.
