When Is It Racketeering?
Racketeering is any two or more people working together to defraud people or otherwise break the law. Racketeering often involves a business that is engaging in illegal activities. Racketeering can be charged in either state or federal court. The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is the state and federal act under which such charges can be brought.
One of the key powers that racketeering charges have is that it allows for the amalgamation of seemingly independent criminal acts. The prosecutor will work to show that each individual criminal act is actually part of a larger criminal enterprise. Prosecuting a case as racketeering rather than the individual crimes alone allows the prosecutor to pursue substantially greater penalties and fines than pursuing the criminal acts individually.
If the government charges you as part of a corrupt organization, you will be facing a much more complex case to defend than whatever individual criminal acts you may be accused of having committed. It is imperative that your interests are represented by an attorney who is capable of constructing an exceptional defense to these complex charges.
