RICO / Illegally Conducting An Enterprise (Federal)

If charged with Federal Racketeering or RICO charges you are facing tough sentences which include prison time.

In 1970, the Federal Government enacted the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). RICO prohibits a person from utilizing a pattern of unlawful activities to infiltrate an interstate enterprise. Under U.S.C. §1961, a RICO indictment must include the following elements:

  • That a “person”, or any individual or entity capable of holding the legal or beneficial interest in a property
  • Has utilized a “pattern of racketeering activity” or the proceeds thereof
  • To infiltrate an interstate “enterprise”
  • By (a) Investing the income derived from the pattern of racketeering activity in the enterprise; (b) acquiring or maintaining an interest in the enterprise through the pattern of racketeering activity; (c) conducting affairs of the enterprise through the pattern of racketeering activity; or (d) conspiring to commit any of the above acts.
