Handling Drug Charge Cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for 30 Years
The legal definition of a criminal conspiracy is a crime in which two or more people are involved. Because the term “conspiracy” is so general, though, police officers and prosecutors are free to charge people with conspiracy even when the term and charges likely don’t apply. For instance, our firm has handled drug conspiracy charges in which an individual:
- Merely had a conversation with someone under investigation for a drug conspiracy
- Was in a car with a large amount of drugs in the trunk, even though he had no idea that the drugs were present
- Allowed a friend to use an apartment, which was then used for an unannounced drug deal
Because drug possession and drug distribution charges can so easily be increased to the more serious charge of drug conspiracy, it is important that you work with an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can work to have your charges reduced or dismissed.
