In order to be convicted of a crime, the crime itself first needs to be done, right? Well, maybe this is your first venture into the idea of conspiracy. And, sad to say, conspiracy of a crime is a crime in and of itself. Conspiracy is to plan committing a crime with one or more people. It can be as simple as a heist with the intent of breaking into a house or as severe as a terrorist attack against a civilian population or an attempt at the life of the President of the United States.
If the crime being conspired is of a certain degree, it could land you in prison for 25 years with no chance of parole. According to the website of the white collar crime lawyers at Cazayoux Ewing Law Firm, there is every chance that before you even think you are being watched for conspiracy that federal agents have been monitoring your movements for a long time before that. The most innocuous questions in the wrong context could be potentially incriminating if you perceive that you can handle a criminal accusation at a federal level. It can be tempting to just talk your way out of it and assume that everything is going to be fine. But so many people put themselves in danger by assuming that they know how to work a system they know little to nothing about.
Being a defendant in a federal court case for conspiracy can be one of the most stressful experiences that a person could ever endure. Federal agents not only have almost limitless resources as well as years and years of extensive training in situations such as this but plaintiffs usually have the upper hand by having had more time in their preparation. That is why it is always advised to immediately contact an experienced legal professional who has dealt with criminal defense cases at a federal level.
