Federal Crimes - Conspiracy to Commit an Illegal Act

There are many different types of conspiracy that will result in federal crime charges. Any conspiracy to commit an illegal act is considered a federal crime. This can involve providing assistance with the planning or execution of a crime and may not even require you to be present at the scene. A defendant convicted on these charges may be sentenced to jail time and subject to significant other fines and penalties in addition to the indignity of living with a stain on their permanent record.

When wrongly accused of these crimes, it is important that you have an experienced legal representative to defend your case. As an Austin criminal defense attorney committed to protecting his clients' rights and freedom, Ian Inglis is prepared to help you understand how to defend yourself against these serious accusations. Contact him at (512) 472-1950 to discuss your case.

Factors Which Support a Successful Defense

Criminal cases are incredibly complex and can sometimes hinge on a single detail or procedural matter. An Austin criminal defense attorney must seek out crucial elements like this that challenge the prosecution's version of the case. The following are some examples of critical errors that might serve you well:

  • False testimony of individuals may be excluded from consideration. Witnesses sometimes embellish details of their testimony or tell outright lies, and your attorney may be able to have them stricken from the record.
  • Definitive evidence may be lacking, and the prosecution may try to mount a case with only circumstantial proof of your involvement in a crime, which is insufficient for conviction
  • Procedural errors in the handling and processing of evidence against you or the violation of your rights in the gathering of evidence may be cause for such evidence to be dismissed
