Frisco Conspiracy Defense Attorney

Federal Crimes Defense Attorney For Conspiracy Charges in Collin County, Texas

Fairview Federal Conspiracy Defense Lawyers

Did you know that it is possible to face federal criminal charges without actually completing the commission of a criminal offense? While it might seem harmless to think or talk about the idea of committing a crime or making plans to commit a crime without actually going through with it, the reality is that such conservations or plans could lead to federal charges for conspiracy. Conspiracy charges are possible even if the primary criminal act was never carried out.

At the Law Offices of Biederman & Burleson P.L.L.C., our lawyers are experienced criminal defense attorneys who have handled many cases in federal court. We understand the seriousness of federal conspiracy charges, and we realize that the penalties associated with a conviction are severe. With this in mind, it is crucial to have a qualified federal criminal defense attorney on your side if you are facing charges of criminal conspiracy, regardless of whether you have been charged with any other related crimes.

Criminal Conspiracy Defense Counsel in Sherman and Plano

Federal charges for criminal conspiracy can be filed in connection with any federal offense. When such charges are filed, it means that prosecutors believe that two or more individuals agreed in some way to commit a federal crime together. In order to secure a conviction in a federal conspiracy case, the prosecuting United States attorney will need to show:

  • At least two people agreed to act;
  • The conspiracy suspect understood the goal of the agreement to act (the intended crime);
  • The suspect participated willingly; and
  • Depending on the primary offense, at least one participant of the conspiracy took an affirmative step toward the commission of the illegal act.

It is important to keep in mind that the primary or intended crime does not need to have been completed. Three people, for example, could come up with a plan to rob a federal bank. Somehow, federal authorities uncover the plan and arrest the trio on their way to commit the crime. The bank was not robbed, but the three people involved would likely face federal charges for criminal conspiracy. If the robbery had been completed, and the arrests were made after the fact, the suspects would probably face charges for both the robbery and conspiracy.

You should also be aware that you could face conspiracy charges even if you do not know the full scope of the intended crime or the conspiracy itself. For example, if your friend asks you to drive a car that you know is carrying illegal drugs to a drop off point, you could be charged with drug trafficking and conspiracy, regardless of the fact that you did not know who would pick it up or where the drugs were ultimately headed.
