Criminal and Civil RICO

Our Atlanta, Georgia attorneys have experience dealing with RICO related charges. RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) is a charge that attempts to tie the alleged criminal actions of a number of people together and then charge them all, in order to increase the penalties for a crime. RICO was originally established to assist the government's lawyers pursue organized crime in 1970. This gave the government a large amount of power to file charges that can dramatically increase the punishment that an individual receives.  

What are the potential consequences of RICO?

The consequences of being charged with RICO crime are severe. You could face up to 20 years in prison and a number of heavy fines depending on the individual charge. On top you must return any received gains and any person or persons deemed harmed are permitted to file a civil suit against you.
