Defense for RICO Violations
Penalties for white-collar crimes can be very severe, especially under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. RICO is a United States federal law that offers extensive criminal punishments and a cause of action for criminal acts that are set forth by an organization.
Many activities are prohibited under RICO, especially those involving conspiracy. Money laundering is another crime that is a violation of RICO. It refers to the act of making it appear as if illegally obtained money, from a terrorist activity or drug trafficking for instance, is attained in a legitimate and legal manner. RICO cases often result in a grand jury investigation.
