RICO Defense Lawyers in Paulding County
Protecting the Accused in Cobb County, Douglas County & the Atlanta Metro Area
In 1978, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) was passed to allow prosecutors the legal capability to fight organized crime. Since that time, these laws have helped weaken gambling, prostitution, and extortion rings, and put gangsters behind bars. Unfortunately, they can also be turned against people who are not guilty of any crime. If you were accused of participating in organized crime operations, you need to work with a Paulding County RICO attorney who can help you protect yourself. Henrickson & Sereebutra offers more than 75 combined years of experience to help you avoid a conviction.
How the Laws Affect You
Because RICO laws affect a wide variety of possible crimes, it is crucial that you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side who can ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process. For example, being charged with a drug crime can become monumentally worse if the charges are brought under organized crime laws.
Prosecutors will need to prove that you either own or manage a criminal organization, or that you performed an illegal activity for an organization. While you may think RICO violations only affect gangs, they can be used to prosecute other groups.
RICO laws can be brought against groups that:
- Embezzle union funds
- Attempt to bribe government officials
- Aid aliens to enter the country illegally
- Engage in acts of terrorism
- Take part in money laundering
- Hire illegal aliens with intent to pay less than minimum wage
