Racketeering Charge Defense Attorney of Albuquerque
Because RICO cases also fall under federal jurisdiction, limited protections exist for defendants under federal case law. This makes any racketeering defense more difficult. If you’ve been accused of racketeering, you need Albuquerque federal criminal defense lawyer Erlinda Ocampo Johnson to defend you.
Racketeering and Its Consequences
A white collar crime, racketeering is a group act of operating an illegal business to make a profit. Racketeering is a broad category and can include theft, bribery, illegal gambling and fraud against businesses or individuals. RICO laws also allow for all of an organization’s criminal enterprises to be tied together into a single prosecution.
Because white collar crimes are taken so seriously by the federal courts, a conviction can carry some very serious penalties. By federal law, prosecution of racketeering can be both a criminal prosecution as well as a civil lawsuit.
That means that penalties for racketeering cases can include substantial prison time, heavy fines, a criminal record and seizure of assets. If the case includes a civil lawsuit, those harmed by the illegal activity can seek sometimes significant financial damages.
