Charged with a violation of the RICO Act in Teaneck?
RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) violations are federal offenses related to organized crime activities. The types of offenses that are charged under this federal statute include crimes related to gambling, homicide, kidnapping, extortion, bribery, arson, pornography and drug crimes. They can also be charges related to counterfeiting, fraud, slavery, money laundering or a long list of other white collar crimes that are deemed to have been related to a corrupt organization, including gangs or others. How federal investigatory units choose to determine whether to charge under the RICO act can be subject to question, as many are accused of violations that are not involved in any organized crime activity. It is crucial that you get immediate legal representation if you are facing a RICO violation, and a Bergen County criminal defense lawyer from The Law Offices of Benjamin Kelsen can help.
