RICO Attorneys Defending Clients Nationwide

Racketeering law is intricate but skilled attorneys at Boles Holmes White are on your side

RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) is often a way that the Federal Government tries to identify a conspiracy between multiple people in a related crime. RICO is used to make sentencing even more punitive because it is not usually the only charge brought against a defendant. By including RICO with other charges, prosecutors may be trying to add multiple years to a prison sentence.

RICO statutes are designed to prosecute the leaders of an organized crime scheme. The organized crime scheme could involve bribery, as in the case of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who was accused and convicted of running a criminal operation from the mayor’s office to accept bribes. It could also include other types of crimes such as drug distribution rings, sports gambling operations, importations of counterfeit goods, or any other criminal activity involving numerous people. RICO was created so that those that ordered the criminal activity and profited from it, but did not actually actively participate in the crime itself, could be prosecuted.
