Conspiracy and what it means to you

You may not realize it right now, but a federal prosecutor can charge you with conspiracy. If this happens, you are put in a difficult position. And here is why: A conviction could land you in federal prison for a long period of time.

The basic definition of conspiracy is simple to understand. This is when two or more people agree to take part in an unlawful act. If prosecutors can prove that you conspired with at least one other person, anything that person did can also be counted against you.

Along with conspiracy, you should also learn more about the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. This was originally implemented as a way for the government to fight back against the Mafia, however, it is now used against a variety of professionals, including but not limited to doctors, business owners, and stockbrokers.

When compared to conspiracy, the penalties associated with RICO are typically stricter.

Are you faced with conspiracy and/or RICO charges? If so, you don't have time to wait around. You are in a serious situation and it is important to understand your rights and which defense strategy will yield the best results.
