Defending Yourself Against Drug Conspiracy Charges

The burden of proof on the prosecution is incredibly broad in the matter of federal drug conspiracy. In order to establish conspiracy, the government must prove only two things:

  • There was an agreement between at least two people to violate federal or state drug laws
  • The defendant knew about the plan and agreed to be a part of it

There are several possible defenses to drug crime conspiracy. Can the prosecution prove that the defendant actually knew what was going on? If the defendant did not know, he or she cannot be found guilty. In some cases, the prosecution proves that a conspiracy involving the defendant existed, but it is a different conspiracy and irrelevant to the present case.
