AGGRESSIVELY PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS
CHARGED WITH AN ORGANIZED CRIME OFFENSE?
One of the most common forms of organized crime in Minnesota involves selling drugs. The trafficking in, packaging and selling of drugs involve more than one individual and this can mean that there is a drug ring or some other organization involved.
The thing about organized crime, however, is that it is hardly ever truly organized. Yet all of the participants work together to achieve the same goal, which is usually large profits.
TYPES OF ORGANIZED CRIME
THE CHARGE OF ORGANIZED CRIME
There are many times in which a person can be in the wrong place at the wrong time and then find that they are charged with conspiracy without knowing why. Take a bank teller, for instance. The bank teller performs a transaction for an individual who has all of the credentials to perform that transaction. He or she is just doing their job to later find out that that individual was part of a crime ring to defraud financial institutions. They stole someone’s identity and that person just so happened to be a part of a crime ring that steals identities so that money can be withdrawn from banks and pocketed.
Unfortunately, the teller is tied up in the scheme. Because he or she performed the transaction, an accusation of being a part of the ring is possible. It is also possible for the guilty party to lay blame on the teller in order to take blame away from themselves.
