RICO stands for the ‘Racketeer Influenced & Corrupt Organizations’ Act, which allows for members of criminal enterprises to be charged with racketeering. If members of the criminal enterprise commit any 2 of 35 listed federal and state crimes within a 10-year period, the RICO Act applies. This act was passed to eliminate the ill-affects of organized crime on the nation’s economy and originally targeted the Mafia and others participating in similar criminal activity.

RICO crimes encompass a wide range of criminal acts, including conspiracy. It is unlawful for any person to conspire with another to violate the RICO Act, and when this is suspected of happening, federal investigators and prosecutors will become involved. In order to charge a person with this federal offense, the defendant must have supposedly made an agreement; they do not necessarily have to have committed the criminal act. Conspiracy and RICO crimes can be very broad and complex charges, which is why it helps to have an experienced federal criminal defense attorney helping you.
