Federal Conspiracy Charges Call For Serious Defense

Federal conspiracy offenses are some of the most common offenses charged in federal criminal court. Indeed, federal law enforcement is usually swift to file conspiracy charges where two or more people are involved in the same federal criminal offense. Federal conspiracy offenses often involve underlying offenses ranging from fraud to drugs. People who were not involved in the crime and who were merely in the wrong place at the wrong time, or associated with a group are sometimes charged with conspiracy as well. Essentially, you can be swept up by various federal and state police agencies for merely associating with others and then must defend yourself. You may have known little to nothing about the crime but wind up being charged. If convicted, you could spend decades serving time in federal prison.

At the Law Offices of Paul D. Petruzzi, P.A., the attorneys have over 30 years of experience defending criminal charges filed in federal court. This experience includes fighting charges of conspiracy, whether drug-related or other offenses that violate federal law.

Understanding The Crime Of Conspiracy

While the general federal conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. § 371 criminalizes “any conspiracy for the purpose of impairing, obstructing or defeating the lawful function of any department of Government,” the government’s ability to file every other type of an offense as a “conspiracy” is very broad.

The government’s evidence against you could include the following:

  • Recorded conversations
  • Testimony from witnesses
  • Email data or other digital information
  • Drugs
  • Other items seized by the authorities in a sweep

You may have been present at the scene of a crime but you were not involved or aware that the guilty parties were involved in the illegal drug trade. No matter what your situation is, there are actions that can be taken by a professional Miami federal criminal defense lawyer who can protect you.
