Braverman v. United States
United States Supreme Court
317 U.S. 49, 63 S.Ct. 99, 87 L.Ed. 23 (1942)
Braverman and others (plaintiffs) were convicted of several separate offenses against the United States tax laws for their illegal manufacture and distribution of liquors. For each of these offenses, they were also charged with conspiracy to commit the offense because the offense arose from an agreement between Braverman and his co-conspirators to commit the offenses. There was only one agreement between the individuals to commit all of the separate offenses for which they were convicted. Braverman petitioned the United States Supreme Court to determine whether he could be convicted of multiple conspiracies deriving from a singular agreement.
