Los Angeles Conspiracy Lawyer
Providing Aggressive Legal Defense
Conspiracy is the act of agreeing and planning to commit a crime with another individual. If two or more people agree to commit any offense and then commit the act, they can be charged for both conspiracy and the crime committed. This crime is often tacked onto more serious offenses by prosecutors and can add significant penalties to a conviction. If you have been arrested or accused of committing conspiracy, it is important to speak with a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer from Law Offices of Scott R. Spindel right away.

Understanding Criminal Conspiracy Charges
Conspiracy is an extremely complex area of criminal law. Conduct that might otherwise be legal can actually be illegal if it was conducted in furtherance of a criminal conspiracy. To make matters more complex, people involved in a conspiracy in a relatively minor way may be held accountable for the acts of more serious actors. Even if only one of the members of the alleged conspiracy elevates the level of criminality by committing a more serious crime, criminal liability may exist for all members of the conspiracy.
Fighting Criminal Conspiracy Charges
Even if the criminal act is unsuccessful, you could still be charged with conspiracy. Cases involving conspiracy charges are very complex and hold serious consequences. If you or someone close to you have been charged with this crime, you will want to hire a seasoned and experienced Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer to defend you.
