RICO Racketeering

RICO / Racketeering in NYC

NYC White Collar Criminal Attorney Serving Yonkers, White Plains, & New Rochelle

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO or RICO Act) of 1970 was enacted by the United States government to combat increasing illegal business dealings and organized crime in major cities across the country. If you have been charged with or are under investigation for racketeering crimes or violation of the RICO Act, you should speak with a Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser attorney immediately. Your business and assets are in danger if you are charged with any type of racketeering (or illegal business) crimes. Common crimes associated with RICO Act violations include:

  • Prostitution rings
  • Car theft rings
  • Drug trafficking and sales
  • Burglary / robbery rings
  • Other crimes

Because so many other types of criminal activity are commonly involved in racketeering/RICO cases, you and your co-workers and employees could be facing multiple charges in many different areas of criminal law. For example, you could be charged with fraud, burglary and grand larceny as secondary charges, depending upon your circumstances.

Racketeering Information

Racketeering and RICO crimes are extremely complex. Often you will face investigation that picks apart your business dealings over a period of ten years or more. It is very important that you retain an attorney who is familiar with RICO Act violations and charges. If you are charged, you could be facing serious penalties such as:

  • Frozen assets
  • Extensive fines
  • Seized assets
  • Restitution fines
  • Extensive jail time
  • Probation
  • Other criminal charges

If you suspect that you are under investigation, you need to contact an attorney immediately. Often your assets will be frozen when you are charged with a racketeering crime, which make it difficult if not impossible to cover attorney’s fees or even your basic needs and those of your family. That is why it is vital to prepare a solid defense immediately after you are aware that you are under investigation. Contact a New York City criminal lawyer at our firm to get started.
