Fighting Conspiracy Charges

Protection from a Skilled Criminal Lawyer

If you have been charged with the crime of conspiracy, you will need to retain the legal services of an experienced firm. At the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser, we have more than 60 years of experience fighting the charges that our clients face. Our criminal defense attorneys in New York City offer the following credentials when fighting for the rights of clients

  • Consistent track record
  • Former prosecutor on our team
  • Nationally-recognized attorneys

You will want to ensure that your attorney has the experience and dedication necessary to provide you with the type of defense that you need. If you are facing a class A felony charge, your life could be irreversibly altered. The threat of a lifetime in prison shouldn't be handled lightly. Your legal representation should put the same importance on your freedom and legal rights that you do.

What constitutes a conspiracy?

Conspiracy charges can come about if a group of people are allegedly in collusion to commit illegal acts in one way or another. If the group of people were in agreement on the illegal acts, it can be considered conspiracy–however, if they were independently committing these crimes, it would not be charged as conspiracy. There are several degrees of conspiracy charges in New York:

  • Class B Misdemeanor - Up to 3 months in jail.
  • Class I Felony - Less severe than a Class A felony.
  • Class A Felony - The most serious form of conspiracy could result in up to a class A felony, which could result in life imprisonment without parole.

The Penalties for Conspiracy in New York

Conspiracy charges are taken very seriously, and the punishments that are doled out for such are indicative of this. Depending on the type of crime that was committed, however, the penalties will vary.

In the event that someone has entered into an agreement with one or more people to commit any type of crime, however, the charges would be classified as conspiracy in the sixth degree, which is only a class B misdemeanor.

The level of service and commitment offered by the criminal defense lawyers at the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser is unmatched. As an intimate, smaller-sized law firm, we have the ability to give each client the attention and consideration needed. The better your attorney knows your case, the stronger your defense will likely be. Contact us today at (800) 813-9069 to start building your unshakable defense.
