Tucson Attorney Defending Against Federal Drug Crimes and Conspiracies
Our law office is well versed and adept at dealing with overly aggressive government agencies
A drug conspiracy offense involves an agreement between two or more people to commit an unlawful act involving narcotics. The government can prove this offense with circumstantial evidence and the crime itself does not have to be committed in order for the conspiracy law to be violated. Conspiracy crimes are punished as though the planned crime had been committed and they often carry lengthy mandatory minimum jail sentences. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) work closely together with other government agencies to enforce the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), including section 846, entitled Attempt and Conspiracy. Tucson, Arizona federal drug crimes attorney Richard C. Bock provides representation before issuance of the indictment and will diligently defend you through trial.
Having a knowledgeable attorney at your side guards you against severe conspiracy allegations
Many people do not realize how little involvement it takes to be deemed a part of a federal drug crime conspiracy. A single phone call or drug sale can get you indicted, even if you never possessed any of the drugs and were only a member of the conspiracy for a short duration of time. It is not even necessary that you knew the particular drug involved; it only needs to be proven that you conspired to possess a controlled substance in general. Skilled Tucson defense lawyer Richard C. Bock makes the government satisfy its burden of proof by challenging each element of the alleged crime. A federal drug crime conspiracy conviction must satisfy these elements:
- The government must prove that there was an agreement to violate a drug law
- It must be shown that each alleged conspirator knew of the agreement and intended to join the conspiracy
- There must have been at least one act in furtherance of the intended conspiracy
