What Is Conspiracy?
Conspiracy is an agreement by two or more people to commit an unlawful act.
There is a Federal conspiracy statute (18 U.S.C. § 371) as well as many other statutes that prohibit specific types of conspiracies such as conspiracy to distribute controlled substances (21 U.S.C. § 846) and conspiracy to commit mail fraud (18 U.S.C. § 1349).
In order to prove a violation of the main Federal conspiracy statute (18 U.S.C. § 371) and secure a conviction, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that: there was an unlawful agreement between two or more people to commit a federal crime; that the defendant knowingly and willfully participated in the conspiracy; and that an overt act was committed in furtherance of the conspiracy.
Proof of a conspiracy and the defendant’s participation in it may be by direct or by circumstantial evidence.
Even though a conspiracy requires the participation of two or more people, there is no requirement that a conspiracy indictment name co-conspirators.
After a conspiracy begins, individual members may drop out of it without terminating the conspiracy itself. Even the arrest of one or more co-conspirators may not terminate a conspiracy.
There are so many technical aspects of conspiracy law that our experienced Federal conspiracy defense attorneys deal with every day. We represent persons charged with conspiracy and related charges in Miami-Dade, Broward, Monroe and Palm Beach Counties.
Federal Prosecutors are actively prosecuting offenses such as money laundering conspiracy (18 U.S.C. § 1956(h)) in connection with fraudulent Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan applications. Not all the conspiracy statutes are the same. You must retain an experienced Federal conspiracy defense attorney to represent you if you have been charged with conspiracy.
