Robert R. Kurtz, Attorney at Law Criminal Conspiracy

Criminal Conspiracy Lawyer in Knoxville

Your Best Choice for Fighting Conspiracy Charges

A criminal conspiracy occurs when two or more people conspire to commit any offense against the United States or to defraud the United States. Unfortunately, this law is rather vague, which gives federal prosecutors an opportunity to stretch its meaning to fit their case. If you have been charged with criminal conspiracy, you need a seasoned Knoxville criminal conspiracy attorney who knows the federal system inside and out.

In fact, all the prosecution needs to prove for a conspiracy conviction is that:

  • A person entered into an agreement to commit a crime
  • This agreement included at least one other person
  • At least one person takes an action toward carrying out the crime

For individuals accused of conspiracy, a key procedural issue concerns whether government prosecutors try to frame the conspiracy as a "hub-and-spoke conspiracy," or as a "chain conspiracy." In a hub-and-spoke conspiracy, the parties conspire with one person only, and not with the other parties. This is advantageous to the defendant, because it means that the conspiracies are separate and not connected. In a chain conspiracy, several parties are links in one long criminal chain, and defendants are responsible for the actions of all the participants.

Knoxville Federal Criminal Conspiracy Attorney: Fearless Advocacy

The maximum prison sentence for federal criminal conspiracy is 5 years, but this may be compounded by other state and federal violations. You could be charged with criminal conspiracy if you were merely present when others were discussing a possible crime. Do not allow yourself to be unfairly criminalized.
