Phoenix Conspiracy Defense Attorney

Arizona Racketeering Case Lawyer

Conspiracy and racketeering are two of the most powerful tools that prosecutors have in their arsenal. If you have been charged with one of these crimes, the government may be able to convict you solely by proving that you entered into an agreement to commit a crime or joined an organization whose purpose is the commission of a crime.

Phoenix conspiracy and racketeering defense lawyer Bruce Feder has more than 30 years of experience helping clients fight serious criminal charges.

Fighting Federal and Arizona State Conspiracy Charges

The basic idea of criminal conspiracy is that participating in an agreement involving two or more people to commit a crime is, itself, a crime. Conspiracy charges are often used against people accused of participating in drug distribution networks, mortgage fraud schemes and other organized criminal activities where there is insufficient proof of the actual crime.

If you are accused of participating in a conspiracy to commit a federal crime or any of a number of Arizona felonies, the government may be able to convict you without having to prove that you or anyone else ever carried out the alleged criminal plan.

Defending Clients Accused of Racketeering Activity

In 1970, Congress passed the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, which goes beyond traditional conspiracy law by making it a crime simply to belong to and participate in an organization that has committed any two of 35 specified crimes within a 10-year period. Arizona has a similar state statute.

While RICO was originally designed as a weapon against organized crime, it has given the federal and state governments broad authority to prosecute members of many different organizations and loosely knit groups. Individuals convicted of racketeering face imprisonment, fines, forfeiture and civil damages.
