Organized crime is a continuing criminal enterprise that rationally works to profit from illicit activities that are often in great public demand. Its continuing existence is maintained through the use of force, threats, monopoly control, and/or the corruption of public officials.
RICO laws are covered under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. They were designed to make the penalties for crimes committed in conjunction with a criminal organization more severe and cover any two out of a list of 35 federal and state crimes. RICO requires establishment of the existence of a criminal organization and identification of a pattern of racketeering over time. RICO cases are rarely filed because proving the existence of such an organization is difficult. Experienced trial lawyers like Omar Johansson know this and can best defend you.
