Virginia Beach Conspiracy Defense Attorney

Were You Accused of Conspiring to Commit a Crime?

Conspiracy occurs when two or more people enter into agreement for a crime to be carried out. A person who conspires in the commission of a criminal offense is oftentimes someone who is involved in the planning of the crime. A conspirator can even be someone who carries out non-criminal acts for the purpose of furthering the commission of the crime.

This means that individuals can still face criminal charges even if they never actually committed the planned crime firsthand. For example, a person can commit conspiracy by hiring someone to commit a violent act against another individual, or planning a fraudulent operation that is carried out by others. Conspiracy charges are oftentimes associated with many different types of white collar crimes.
