RICO Violations in San Francisco

Racketeering Charges

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, also known as RICO, is a law that increases the severity of penalties for crimes performed in conjunction with organized crime activities. This means leaders of organized crime groups are no longer immune—or inaccessible—when it comes to being tried for crimes that they have ordered others to commit.

RICO states that any individual or group who commits 2 out of 35 specifically listed crimes with similar results in a 10 year period can be charged with racketeering. These crimes include:

The maximum penalty for a racketeering conviction is a fine of up to $25,000 and up to 20 years in prison. The convicted individual or group will also be required to relinquish all business interests and gains secured as a result of their criminal activities. We strongly recommend you seek counsel from our legal team at our firm if you have been charged with RICO violations. While investigators and the prosecutor must provide evidence that a criminal organization exists, having an attorney who possesses an intimate knowledge of RICO cases can be vital.
