U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Stevenson , 215 U.S. 200 (1909)

United States v. Stevenson (No. 2)

No. 293

Argued October 14, 15, 1909

Decided November 29, 1909

215 U.S. 200


Where Congress has made an act a crime and indictable, it follows that, if two or more conspire to commit the act, they conspire to commit an offense against the United States within the meaning of § 5440, Rev.Stat., and so held in regard to conspiring to assist immigration of contract laborers in violation of § 4 of the Immigration Act of February 20, 1907, c. 1134, 34 Stat. 898.

It is within the power of Congress to regulate the punishment of crimes, and it may make the punishment for conspiring to commit a crime greater than that for committing the crime itself.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
