Racketeering (also known as RICO) involves a commissioned pattern of predicate offenses by a group with a common purpose or course of conduct making up an "enterprise." It covers a broad category of criminal acts that includes bribery, sexual exploitation of children (prostitution rings), illegal gambling, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and many more.
Racketeering and RICO is associated with organized crime, since it is conducted by a group. RICO can be associated with a legal business or illegal entity. As such, it is a prime target for prosecuting attorneys at both the state and federal level.
RICO and Racketeering charges are commonly prosecuted at the federal level. The best lawyers know that federal Courts are different from State Courts and require a different type of defense. Federal charges are investigated by large government agencies with virtually unlimited resources and time to build their cases. If you suspect that you may be charged or under investigation by the federal government, it is critical that you obtain the services of an experienced federal criminal defense attorney.
Racketeering charges, particularly when handled in the federal court system, can be subject to strict sentencing guidelines and substantial prison terms, fines and restitution and can even instigate a separate civil RICO case against you. Even the accusation crime, regardless of the evidence, can do substantial harm to your professional reputation.
Pre-trial preparation is the key to successful defense of racketeering accusation in federal court. Your federal defense team of lawyers needs to have the experience and expertise to determine which records are relevant to your case and thoroughly analyze these records.
The investigation of any type of organized crime charge generally requires discovery motions by attorneys to compel prosecutors, employers, banks and other institutions to turn over records to be used in your defense.
Racketeering and RICO cases usually involve large amounts of records and witnesses. These cases are often won and lost based on pre-trial preparation by the lawyers. Your defense team of attorneys must have the expertise and time to conduct its own investigation of your case.
Because of the time and specialized skills required by lawyers, winning requires a defense team, not just a single attorney. Generally speaking, prosecuting attorneys do not pursue cases they feel they can lose in trial. This is why it is critical for the lawyers to dig even deeper than the prosecution and inject reasonable doubt that will let you win in trial, if necessary.
