Criminal Charges Under RICO
Federal prosecutors use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, to investigate and potentially convict someone of racketeering and other criminal offenses. Under RICO, prosecutors must prove:
- You own or manage the organization
- The organization performs one or more illegal activity
Common illegal activities listed in RICO claims include embezzlement, money laundering, fraud, federal drug offenses, robbery or violent crimes. All members, even lower-ranking members, of an organization can face criminal charges.
