A Strong Defense Against Drug Conspiracy Charges
It is unlawful for any person to conspire to commit a drug offense. The elements of a conspiracy to commit a substantive offense (18 U.S.C. Section 371) must allege a specific drug offense.
You Can Be Charged With Multiple Offenses In Drug Conspiracy Cases
You can be charged with drug conspiracy regardless of whether the crime is committed. Even if you did not commit the actual crime, you may be charged with the crime and any criminal acts that arise from it, in addition to drug conspiracy. You may face federal and state drug conspiracy charges.
If you are convicted of conspiring to commit a drug crime, you may face the same penalties as the parties that commit the crime. You may face separate penalties for the drug conspiracy charge. Multiyear prison sentences and fines may be imposed, depending on the details of the offense.
