What is Racketeering?

Nov. 2, 2020

Racketeering involves the operation of fraudulent and dishonest business enterprises. Those who are charged with racketeering may face federal criminal charges with hefty prison sentences on the table.

Federal officials will not hesitate to expend their money and resources on racketeering investigations, and it is not to be taken lightly when charges are pressed against those who engaged in unlawful business misconduct. These cases are often called RICO (Racketeer Influences And Corrupt Organization Act) cases. Congress passed the RICO act in 1970 an effort to eradicate organized crime in the United States.

If you have been charged with racketeering, your best advocate is a criminal defense attorney with federal experience. You need someone with both knowledge of the issues, and expertise in a federal courtroom so that you have the best chance at freedom when being charged with such a serious offense.
