How can you defend against conspiracy charges?

Criminal conspiracy is a charge that is often added along to other charges, like tax evasion or engaging in a pyramid scheme to defraud other people, when there are co-defendants on trial for the same crime.

Health conditions that affect field sobriety tests

Law officers use FSTs, or field sobriety tests, to help estimate the blood alcohol content of a suspected drunk driver. Three tests have been approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration: the horizontal gaze nystagmus, the walk-and-turn test and the one-leg stand. If you are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, the prosecutor will use the results of these tests as evidence against you in court. However, there are various health issues that might affect the outcome of FSTs, making them an inaccurate indicator of a BAC level.

Embezzling, which is when you take funds or misappropriate funds that were given to you for business reasons.
