Are You Facing a Conspiracy Charge?

Brooklyn Conspiracy Defense Lawyer

What is a Federal Conspiracy Charge?

A federal conspiracy is the agreement to commit an illegal act. The crime is the agreement itself. But at least one co-conspirator must take an “overt act” in furtherance of the conspiracy. The overt act itself need not be unlawful, and not all members of the conspiracy are required to take an overt act; one co-conspirator’s overt act is enough. For example, one co-conspirator’s rental of a van – a perfectly legal act – to be used in a bank robbery is sufficient for his co-conspirators to be held criminally accountable for their agreement to rob the bank, even if no other steps are taken. One can be charged for conspiracy for doing actions that are otherwise legal if they further a criminal plan. One may be held responsible for crimes committed by anyone in the criminal enterprise. For instance, the person driving a getaway car in a bank holdup is guilty of murder, if the holdup man shoots the teller. This is true even though the driver does not have a gun, enter the bank or do anything except drive the getaway car. Conspiracy is often charged in connection with drug trafficking, money laundering, burglary, theft, murder and RICO prosecutions. If you are charged with conspiracy, it may be at the state or federal level. If you seek a strong defense against these charges, you are urged to contact a criminal defense lawyer in Brooklyn.

Defending Your Rights

At the Law Offices of David E. Levine, we defend clients charged with conspiracy in the Brooklyn area. We are conscious of the inherent unfairness of conspiracy charges where marginally involved persons are charged with crimes. We utilize all available defenses to reach a favorable outcome for our clients. We move to controvert wiretaps and search warrants for constitutional violations and to suppress evidence seized. We move to suppress confessions taken under duress or without notification of rights. Where clients are implicated by informants, we expose the criminal background of the accuser and challenge their credibility.

At trial, we relentlessly challenge misleading or prejudicial evidence offered by the government. We remind the jury of its duty to consider our client innocent until proven guilty and to hold the government responsible for proving its case beyond a reasonable doubt. Where appropriate, we present our client's side of the story and strongly appeal to the jury to acquit. We have successfully defended many clients who have received a favorable resolution of their cases. We urge you to contact us to discuss your case before it progresses further through the system.
