Federal prosecutors file cases against people they of conspiracies of all kinds, including conspiracies to sell drugs and launder the proceeds. They often pursue more complex cases than the states do, and often seek severer penalties.

Defending against indictments of conspiracy

Federal cases alleging conspiracies often have significant amounts of video and wiretap evidence, and often there are many people alleged to have been part of the crimes alleged. The defense must prepare thoroughly, looking for possible defenses, both technical as well as on the merits of the defense. Mistakes in the prosecution’s argument or mistakes made by law enforcement can be found, and used in defense or negotiation of the charges.
