Miami RICO Attorney
Defense for Racketeering and RICO Violations in Miami, Florida
Under federal law, an individual who has obtained income through any pattern of racketeering is prohibited from investing or using this money in the acquisition of an activity or enterprise that affects interstate or foreign commerce. Racketeering activity includes any of a number of criminal acts, including murder, arson, bribery, extortion, drug crimes, fraud, and many other specific offenses. This is covered under the Federal Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, which was initially developed to address issues related to mafia activity and other types of organized crime. Today, RICO charges may be increasingly common in white collar environments, as well as in relation to drug trafficking organizations or similar operations.
