Federal Conspiracy Charges Defense Attorneys
Conspiracy is probably the most commonly charged federal crime. Prosecutors often rely on it because it allows them to include evidence that might otherwise not be relevant to substantive charges. Conspiracy charges do not require that a conventional crime be committed. Two people just talking about committing a federal crime, and taking even a minor step that constitutes an “overt act” toward committing the crime, can be enough for a conspiracy conviction. Hearsay, ordinarily inadmissible for other criminal charges, is often admissible in conspiracy cases.
In short, conspiracy charges often make the job of prosecutor much easier. Our job, at Murphy & Price, LLP, is often to make prosecutors’ job more difficult in order to accomplish a better result for our client.
The Federal Criminal Practice at Murphy & Price, LLP, is nationwide in scope, with particular focus on federal criminal cases in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico, California and Florida.
