Conspiracy can involve anything from a simple bank robbery to a sophisticated Mafia cartel. A person who acts as part of a conspiracy risks far greater penalties if caught than a person who acts alone. Trial Lawyer Butler handles cases that involve:
- Drug conspiracy
- Bank fraud
- Organized crime on the internet
- White collar “inside jobs”
- Child Pornography
If you are convicted of conspiracy, even if you are only convicted of planning the crime, you may face the same penalty as the person who actually committed the crime. With Federal drug cases, prosecutors use conspiracy charges in two ways: 1) they add the charge for participating in a conspiracy, which increases your penalty, and 2) increase the quantity of drugs involved, which increases your penalty. In other words, even if you only had a small amount on your person, through a conspiracy charge, you could be charged with possessing and trafficking greater amounts.
