What is RICO?

RICO charges involve the operation of an illegal business or enterprise, including fraudulent scams, for an individual or entity’s personal profit.

The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and similar state racketeering laws give the government a tremendous amount of power to go after those accused of racketeering.

The RICO act is broad and covers a variety of white collar crimes including:

  • murder,
  • the transportation and distribution of drugs,
  • gambling,
  • embezzlement,
  • extortion,
  • theft/armed robbery,
  • money laundering, and
