Tampa Racketeering Defense Lawyer
Protecting You From Life-Altering Criminal Charges
Racketeering, also known as RICO violation consists of a criminal network that agrees to commit fraud, embezzlement, or drug-related crimes, particularly distribution. Although this is generally a case for the federal court, the Florida state government has designed its own approach to RICO crimes that allow it to charge these criminals in state court, independent of the federal government. Keep in mind, these state-level convictions can carry just as much weight as those in federal court and they often lead to serious penalties such as asset forfeiture and lengthy prison sentences.
RICO laws were initially meant to thwart crimes committed by the Mafia but since their inception, they have expanded to include businesses involved in these same crimes.
