Protecting Your Legal Rights
Law enforcement officials typically use the drug conspiracy charge in their efforts to shut down a drug operation. No matter your level of involvement or knowledge, you could find yourself facing charges in these investigations. Many people are often targeted as a tactic to obtain information.
In order to prove conspiracy, the prosecutor must have an understanding of the facts and evidence that corroborates the facts. That means you had to know that something illegal was happening and consented to it.
As a former prosecutor with the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Linder has had success in minimizing his clients’ involvement in the operation. He’ll work to weaken the evidence by applying a viable defense ⎼ his client wasn’t aware of the illegal activity in question.
