Conspiracy Defense Lawyer

Experienced Louisville Criminal Defense Attorney

Conspiracy, in general terms, is an illegal agreement expressed or implied between two or more people to violate the law, and requires proof of an act to achieve that agreement. Such charges often include:

  • Conspiracy to Commit Mail or Wire Fraud
  • Conspiracy to Possess with the Intent to Distribute Controlled Substances
  • Conspiracy to Commit Theft or Embezzlement of Property or Goods
  • Conspiracy to Import or Export Weapons
  • Conspiracy to Commit Murder

The prosecution of conspiracy cases more commonly take place in federal district courts, rather than in state court prosecutions. The prosecution and defense of conspiracy charges are typically more complex, lengthy and involve multiple defendants represented in the trial court by multiple attorneys each representing separate individuals accused. The defense of such cases requires knowledge, legal experience and talent by an attorney closely familiar with federal law and procedure and a familiarity with the defenses available. The Rules of Evidence, particularly in federal prosecutions, focus on co-conspirator hearsay which requires knowledge of federal practice and procedure.
