Conspiracy is a favorite charge in federal court both for white collar crimes and drug trafficking and other types of crimes, but especially white collar crimes and especially drug trafficking. Because often times, you will find people who are involved in the conspiracy who agree to be a part of it who may have a limited role or a much less role in some of the organizer leaders or some of the management type people in the middle. Conspiracy enables the prosecutor to be able to charge people and varying degrees of culpability and find them guilty or attempt to find them guilty even though a person may have only been a person who picked up money or made a deposit or gave someone a ride, or sent a message or something like that.
