RICO VIOLATION LAWYER IN LUZERNE COUNTY
Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization
In 1970, the federal government passed the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) Act to address crimes of an organized nature. This law is specifically aimed at punishing the criminal activity of business enterprises controlled by organized crime. Crimes subject to the behaviors of racketeering stipulated in this law include bribery, murder, loan sharking, securities fraud, mail fraud, extortion, prostitution, gambling, narcotics trafficking and more.
As established in the RICO act, persons accused and found guilty of any crime of this nature will face punishment of up to 20 years in prison, as well as forfeiting any interest or property claim over the criminal enterprise. Furthermore, a RICO defendant may be required to pay damages to the injured party as established under the jurisdiction of the civil court.
