CONSPIRACY


 

Conspiracy or Acting With Others in Furtherance of a Crime

 

The charge of conspiracy allows the state or federal government to charge a person who has done any act in furtherance of a crime. This charge casts a wide net because it allows the state to charge someone with an underlying crime just for having done anything that can be viewed as having assisted in the crime.

 

A group of people can be held responsible for a crime if it is shown that each one of them had acted to advance the goal of committing the crime. It is not necessary that a person know the full extent of the conspiracy or all of its participants, rather all that needs to be shown is that the person did some act to help advance the goal of the conspiracy.

 

Conspiracy charges are commonly seen in federal and state court related to drug charges. This is a charge which allows the state to accuse a large group of acting together to violate state or federal law.

 

Conspiracy cast a wide net in which everyone who is a part of the conspiracy can be held responsible for acts of others that are committed during the conspiracy. To join a conspiracy there does not have to be a written or even a verbal agreement, just some type of evidence that a person agrees to act with others. The person does not even have to be the one who commits an act in furtherance of the conspiracy as long as one member of the conspiracy commits an act to further the conspiracy all those who are considered to have been a part of that conspiracy can be held responsible based on that one persons act.

 

Someone can be held responsible just for aiding and abetting a person in the conspiracy. This charge can make a person be held responsible for large drug quantities even if their role was a small one. In federal court if charged in a drug conspiracy a person could be held responsible for any quantity that was foreseeable it does not have to been known to the client just a foreseeable quantity that the conspiracy may be dealing with. This also is true for loss amounts when it comes to financial crimes such as healthcare fraud, wire fraud, or mail fraud all of which can be charged as a conspiracy is well.

 

The charge is less frequently seen in state court but does exist and the definition is mainly the same: to act with others in furtherance of the crime with at least one person committing an act which was in furtherance of the crime.

Federal crimes are those which violate federal laws they can be also the same offense as in a state court. Federal and state courts have different jurisdictions but can be applied to the same case. Usually only one or the other takes on the case. Although someone can be charged based on the same acts in both state and federal court it is routinely handled in either one or the other.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
