Defending Alleged Participants in Criminal Enterprises
Conspiracy and RICO charges place a defendant in a very vulnerable position. The defendant must defend himself or herself on the main charges, (such as drug trafficking or mortgage fraud), as well as tangential conspiracy/RICO charges. Because such cases involve multiple participants, prosecutors are often able to gain the cooperation of one or more people in the alleged conspiracy. The U.S. government has immense resources, and it employs them to gain convictions.
At Pearson & Paris, P.C., we defend people accused of conspiracy and RICO charges (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act). We are aggressive and thorough in our defense, with the resources needed to deal with the many complex aspects of such cases.

Defending Conspiracy Charges
Conspiracy is a catch-all charge that is frequently made against alleged participants in organized criminal activities, such as drug smuggling, human trafficking and chop shops. It is also charged in conjunction with white collar crimes such as fraud schemes involving more than one participant. Though it is an add-on charge that is tangential to the main criminal charges, a conspiracy charge is serious: conviction can result in a prison sentence of five years or more.
The conspiracy charge is particularly dangerous in that the criminal act does not have to be completed for a person to be charged. If two or more participants merely take actions in furtherance of a criminal enterprise, then they could be convicted of conspiracy.
Our lawyers aggressively defend people accused of conspiracy and other federal crimes. We will conduct a strong and vigorous defense of your rights and freedom.
