Federal prosecutors announce dark web arrests

Federal prosecutors have announced that three men have been charged with laundering money and distributing illegal drugs on a website that hid its activities on what is known as the dark net. Federal authorities worked with law enforcement agencies in Germany and other countries during the investigation according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Central District of California. The three men apprehended are all German nationals and face additional charges in their home country.

When is a DUI a felony?

Receiving any DUI charges can be scary and overwhelming whether or not it has happened before. California takes drunk driving very seriously to deter impaired people from getting behind the wheel and endangering others. This means that penalties for a conviction can be numerous and harsh depending on the circumstances.

Proving criminal conspiracy in California

In order to prove criminal conspiracy charges, prosecutors in California must be able to convince juries that defendants entered into an arrangement to commit a crime, intended to commit that crime and took action to move the plan forward. Defendants can be convicted of conspiracy even if the crime they planned is never committed and the overt act taken to complete the scheme was not a criminal act.
