Racketeering Lawyer Houston, TX
Racketeering/RICO Violation Defense in Texas
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) was originally meant to prohibit a criminal organization from profiting from legitimate business operations. Today, however, the RICO Act may also be used to charge any corporation, or individual, with criminal activity.
If you have been charged or are under investigation for RICO violations, contact a Houston racketeering attorney immediately. These are serious charges that are vigorously prosecuted by the federal government. The Law Offices of Jed Silverman provides experienced, aggressive defense against all types of white collar criminal charges, including RICO/racketeering.
RICO Penalties and Related Charges
Depending on the specifics of the charge, penalties for a RICO violation conviction can include:
- Up to life in prison
- Property forfeiture for any assets obtained as a result of the crime
In addition, you may be facing penalties for other serious criminal charges. RICO violations are usually charged in conjunction with other crimes such as:
- Mail and wire fraud
- Money laundering
- Drug trafficking
- Drug manufacturing
