Skilled Attorneys Handle Utah Federal Conspiracy Cases
Criminal defense lawyers defend clients in the Salt Lake City area against serious allegations
In the federal criminal justice system, a conspiracy charge related to drug trafficking or large-scale fraud operations can expose you to a severe risk of punishment. If you’ve been charged with conspiracy, it’s important to be represented by an attorney who has experience representing clients in federal court. At Jon D. Williams, P.C., we draw upon an extensive background securing the rights of our clients in the Salt Lake City area and throughout Utah who face conspiracy charges and will provide a thorough defense to the allegations against you.
Knowledgeable Utah advisers explain what conspiracy charges mean
A conspiracy is nothing more or less than an agreement between two or more people to commit a crime, together with an overt act by at least one person to advance the illegal purpose of the conspiracy. An actual crime need not have been committed, a conspirator need not know all the details of the illegal plan, and the overt act need not itself have been a crime. The agreement is the essence of the conspiracy, not the crime itself.
Proven litigators provide defenses to complex conspiracy charges
In real life, a federal conspiracy offense might involve dozens or hundreds of people, with most unknown to one another, who are alleged to have participated in a complex drug trafficking or fraud scheme. We put our understanding of federal fraud law to use by challenging the evidence linking you to the agreement, by showing that the alleged overt acts were in fact innocent and unconnected to the criminal conduct, or even by demonstrating your withdrawal from the agreement before the underlying crimes occurred.
Our analysis of the facts will identify the best approach to take in your case. Whether you’re facing minor drug charges or a major federal indictment, we are fully prepared to advocate for your rights.
