What Kinds Of Conduct Can Lead To Conspiracy Or Accomplice Charges?

There are a couple of common scenarios that serve as examples of how authorities may try to use accomplice charges against you in a criminal case.

  • Driver of a vehicle — Even if you only a drove a vehicle, prosecutors may contend that you were an accomplice in the conduct of the person you drove around. If the other person committed the burglary of a residence or business, or robbed a bank, you could be facing the same level of penalties as that person. Our attorneys will push back aggressively against the charges on your behalf.
  • Drug distribution — There is a big difference between giving or selling a small amount of drugs to a friend or acquaintance and actually engaging in drug distribution or trafficking. But prosecutors may try to rope you into a large scheme by claiming you were a co-conspirator. We will provide forceful advocacy that protects your rights throughout the criminal justice process.

The charges you face may be under federal law or Maryland state law. Either way, when you face conspiracy or accomplice charges, it's important to be proactive about making a strong defense.
