Shooting and chase through town lead to conspiracy charges

Conspiracy charges are often associated with large-scale criminal activities such as those involving drugs, prostitution and weapons. In some cases, a person can be charged with conspiracy simply by engaging or participating in a plot to commit a crime even though the person does not personally commit the crime. To avoid the often harsh penalties that come with a conviction involving conspiracy charges, an accused person stands a better chance of withstanding prosecution by a mounting a conspiracy defense.

Federal indictment targets second man in charities fraud case

Oregon residents may recall the charges last October against the former head of National Relief Charities, an organization dedicated to helping Native Americans with college costs. The allegations in that case covered acts of fraud - deception committed for financial gain - which can include wire fraud, mortgage fraud, bank fraud and other white-collar offenses. Most of these are federal crimes, so convictions usually mean harsher penalties than in state courts because of mandatory minimum sentencing.
