Were You Accused Of Drug Conspiracy And Distribution?
Drug conspiracy and distribution charges are very serious criminal matters that can land a person in jail or prison and have other life-changing effects. If you or someone you care about has been charged or is being investigated for one of these crimes, it is essential to obtain strong defense representation as soon as possible and to refrain from talking to law enforcement officers about the case until you have legal counsel.
In essence, a conspiracy charge can mean prosecutors are trying to hold you responsible for the criminal actions of someone else – for example, it can mean you allegedly planned or agreed to sell or distribute a controlled substance. Since no sale or possession has to occur for you to be charged, such cases can be created with weak evidence. In Virginia, conspiracy can be prosecuted as a state or federal crime.
