  1. The conspsiracy statute specifically includes a provision that you can charge a person with conspiracy without concern of what the co-defendants were charged with or found guilty of. My advice to you is to do some research with regards to that statute or consult with an attorney.

    Answering this question does not create an attorney-client relationship. Legal advice has not been given. Also, this question and answer is posted on a public forum and therefore any attorney-privilege is waived.


  2. Yes. You'll need an experienced attorney to handle this for you. It's not going away.

    Macy Jaggers's answer to a legal question on Avvo does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Jaggers offers everyone a free consultation to discuss their case. Feel free to call her office at 214-365-9800 to make an appointment (phones are answered 24 hours) or visit her website at www.macyjaggers.com for more information about her services and recent victories.


  3. Yes; the person going to trial may be charged with any offense (including different objects of one conspiracy or with multiple conspiracies pursuant to 21 USC § 846) as long as the time limits prescribed by 18 USC § 3282(b) (the "statute of limitations") have not expired (in most drug cases, 5 years from the date of the act, or in the case of a conspiracy, 5 years from the completion of the conspiracy, the last act in furtherance of the conspiracy by an co-conspirator, or the defendant's withdrawal, legally, from the conspiracy).
