Miami Criminal Defense Attorney / Miami Federal Conspiracy Attorney

Miami Federal Conspiracy Attorney

You may have heard of a conspiracy, but what exactly is it and how can it be a crime? Generally speaking, a conspiracy is sort of a partnership in crime. A conspiracy exists when two or more people come together with the intent to violate the law, and then act on that intent. The crime of Conspiracy was created to address the dangers involved when people come together and join forces to commit criminal acts. Conspiracy laws enable the investigator to get beyond the first layer of visible members to find and prosecute the brains behind a criminal scheme.

The federal government unfairly tries to use guilt by association to win cases. A common strategy is for the federal government to charge conspiracy when there are multiple people involved. This means that innocent people are often held criminally responsible for the actions of those around them like friends, family members, and co-workers.
