ARRESTED UNDER RICO? OUR FIRM CAN FIGHT FOR YOU!

In 1970, Congress enacted the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to combat involvement in illegal business schemes and organized crime. Anyone who is involved in organized crime who commits a criminal offense is guilty of violating this Act and is punishable under 18 USC §1963 by up to 20 years in federal prison or by life imprisonment if such is required for the offense committed. The individual will also be required to forfeit any interest, security, claims, or property acquired through racketeering.

Crimes punishable as racketeering range from white collar crimes such as money laundering, bribery, and extortion, drug crimes, and computer crimes. As long as they are committed by an individual who is involved in a corrupt organization, it is racketeering. An organization can be considered a crime syndicate under RICO if it has committed at least 2 of any of the 35 listed crimes within a 10-year period. This means that a member of any organization that has been found guilty of two convictions could face RICO violation charges if they are charged with a crime themselves. The list of RICO offenses include:

  • Murder
  • Kidnapping
  • Robbery
  • Bribery
  • Extortion
  • Dealing in obscene matter
  • Drug dealing
