Information About Federal Racketeering Violations

Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, also referred to as RICO, is a federal law in the United States that allows for extended penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed in congruence with an ongoing criminal organization. Focusing specifically on racketeering, the act allows for leaders of a group to be tried for the crimes that they ordered other another to do. For example, if an individual orders another to murder someone, the person who commanded the order may no longer be exempt from trial. The act closed the loophole that used to exist in this case.

According to the law, racketeering activity can be seen in several forms, including:

  • Violation of state statutes against murderextortion, kidnapping, arson, robbery or bribery
  • An act of counterfeiting, theftembezzlementfraud, money laundering, commission of murder-for-hire
  • Bankruptcy fraud or security fraud
  • Drug trafficking and long term drug networks
  • Bringing in or assisting aliens in illegally entering the country
  • Terrorist acts
