New Video FAQ: How did I get charged with conspiracy when I didn’t agree to work with those people?
In a new video FAQ on his website, Nashville criminal defense attorney Brent Horst discusses conspiracy charges and why the federal government prefers to pursue them over smaller-scale criminal charges.
Conspiracy charges arise when a group of individuals are connected in some way to the same crime. For example, conspiracy charges are common in drug-selling rings. While the individual sellers may not be aware of each other and never agreed to work together, they can be charged with conspiracy due to their connection to their supplier. Conspiracy accusations come with weightier penalties, so federal law enforcement officials are more likely to pursue them.
If you have been charged with conspiracy, you will need the help of an experienced Nashville criminal defense attorney to help you maintain your innocence. Call Horst Law at to learn more.
