About RICO Crimes

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (18 U.S.C. §§ 1961-1968), was signed into law in 1970. It allows law enforcement to charge an individual or group with racketeering, which is an illegal business, usually associated with organized crime. The charge can cover a wide variety of enterprise-related illegal activities including fraud, extortion, bribery, drug transportation/distribution, robbery, arson, gambling, kidnapping, murder, money laundering, embezzlement and counterfeiting, among others. Many white collar crimes can fall under the jurisdiction of RICO, even though the original intent of the act was the curtailment and eradication of mob-related activities.

Penalties vary based on severity of the acts in question, but can include long-term imprisonment, extensive restitution for victims, forfeiture of property and severe fines. Skilled criminal defense would work to prove either that there was insufficient evidence to convict, that there was lack of knowledge of the illegal activities, or that there was illegal or improper law enforcement procedure used during the investigation and/or arrest of the accused. If you have been charged with racketeering, it is essential that you immediately contact a Los Angeles white collar crimes lawyer to give you the trusted legal guidance and solutions you will need to fight these serious charges.
