Texas Lawyers For RICO Crime Defense
The RICO Act (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) allows for a member of an enterprise who has committed any two of 35 crimes within a 10-year period to be charged with racketeering. This can carry a prison term of up to 20 years, and can include interest and property forfeiture of the business involved in the violation.
While RICO laws are extremely complex, they also place a great deal of burden on the government to obtain a conviction. An experienced criminal defense attorney with thorough RICO knowledge can make all the difference.
