Conspiracy Charges Defense Attorney in Cumming
If you are facing Georgia conspiracy charges, the Teiger Law Center, defense attorneys in the Alpharetta and Cumming area, may be able to help get the charges dropped or reduced to mitigate potential punishments and fines. Anyone involved in a conspiracy to commit a felony may be charged and would face fines, imprisonment, or both. Conspiracy is a separate charge, independent of the crime, which can range from fraud to tax evasion. Life imprisonment, death, one or more years of jail time, restitution, lengthy probation and future employment difficulties are just some of the challenges that arise from conviction.
Conspiracy, defined as an agreement between two or more people to "aid, abet, counsel, command, induce or procure" or commit an illegal act and the illegal act is committed, is a serious charge and not to be taken lightly - since it has traditionally been an easy charge for prosecutors to win, since only evidence of a pact to commit an illegal act and the fact that the crime was actually committed must be proven.
Depending on circumstances, there are many approaches to a conspiracy charge defense. It is easy for an innocent person to get caught up simply by being with the wrong group of people discussing topics you did not initiate. An offhand joke or comment can also be misconstrued.
Unfortunately, the repercussions may be months of intense investigation and numerous appearances in State or Federal Court. We may argue O.C.G.A. 16-4-9, Withdrawal, as a defense, proving that our client withdrew his participation before the overt act occurred. Oftentimes, evidence proves that the conspiracy charge has been applied incorrectly. We do all we can to get incriminating statements against you ruled as inadmissible evidence.
Alpharetta Criminal Defense Attorney
When you are charged with conspiracy, you need skilled legal representation to explain your rights and give you a full understanding of the charge and the consequences of conviction, as well as the best approach to defending your case. Whether or not the defendant committed the crime does not matter. If the crime was committed and the defendant was in on any part of the planning or aftermath, he or she can be charged with conspiracy, even if he/she previously bowed out. He/she may be liable for all "reasonably foreseeable" acts done, even if he or she was unaware that a crime was about to happen.
Types of conspiracy may include health care fraud, mortgage fraud, conspiracy to unlawfully possess and forge checks, bank/securities fraud, mail/wire fraud, insurance fraud, drug conspiracy, militia conspiracy to overthrow the government, defrauding the United States, murder, kidnapping, assassination, violation of civil rights, drugs, and RICO.
