How Do You Defend Against a Federal Charge in Chicago?
Federal law says that if you plan to commit a crime with a minimum of one
other person, you can be charged with federal conspiracy. All you have
to do to warrant the charges is to plan the crime and you will be immediately
at risk of the charge. Even if you do not actually go through with the
crime, federal conspiracy charges can still apply. If convicted, you may
face fines on top of prison time.

How Do You Win a Federal Conspiracy Case?
The first step is to connect with an experienced
Illinois criminal defense lawyer who has a proven track record of success helping individuals overcome
their criminal charges and get the second chance at life that they deserve.
When you work with Thomas C. Hallock, your case will be completely and
thoroughly investigated. This includes, but is not limited to interviewing
witnesses, reviewing the crime scene if it exists, looking over any forensic
evidence against you, and breaking down all aspects of the case the state
has against you.
It is up to the prosecution to make a solid case against you proving that
you agreed to commit a crime with others, the people you agreed to commit
a crime with also agreed to the arrangement, and at least one act that
took the plan from the stages of talk to action took place. For example,
maybe you planned a crime with a friend and both of you agreed to the
details of the act and were set to commit the crime. Then, your friend
goes to the store to purchase items that will assist you in committing
the crime. After you have everything, you have a change of heart and decide
not to commit the crime. Despite the fact that you did not actually go
through with the crime, the actions that you took planning the crime and
then actually going out to act on purchasing tools for the crime can be
enough to make the charges stick. Your defense strategy must make it impossible
for all of these things to be proven true.
