RICO & Racketeering Charges in Atlanta

The United States government created the RICO Act to prosecute the mafia and organized crime for illegal business and other practices. Enacted in 1970, the RICO Act provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization.

However, in recent years, the use of RICO has expanded. RICO has been used to prosecute individuals, businesses, political groups, drug traffickers, churches, and even public school employees. Almost anyone can become the subject of a RICO prosecution.
