Conspiracy in Pennsylvania
Retain Legal Representation from Our Philadelphia Federal Crimes Attorney
Criminal conspiracy involves an agreement between two or more people to commit a crime or to execute an illegal act. Federal prosecutors typically include this type of crime with other charges such as manufacture drugs and weapons, fraud, money laundering and other high-level federal crimes. What’s unique about conspiracy cases is that even if the ultimate crime was not committed, the conspirators can still be convicted for planning the crime.
If you have been charged for conspiracy, our Philadelphia federal crimes lawyers possess the extensive knowledge of the state and federal legal system to successfully navigate our clients through the law’s complexities. We can provide you with the aggressive and relentless defense necessary to protect your rights and reputation.
The general conspiracy statute is 18 U.S.C. § 371, which criminalizes both conspiracies to defraud the United States along with conspiracies to violate any other federal law provision. Federal statues recognize two kinds of conspiracies: felony offense and misdemeanor offense.
Any attempt or conspiracy to commit a crime against the U.S. federal government is punishable by maximum prison sentence of five years and a fine. However, the punishment for a conspiracy charge based on a misdemeanor offense is less severe.
