Racketeering as a Federal Crime
Answers from a Proven Knoxville Racketeering Attorney

criminal syndicate cases and Congress' Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt

Racketeering Crimes and Penalties
No less than 35 different kinds of crimes are defined under federal racketeering
definitions. While they range from the violent to nonviolent, all of them
must be associated with an enterprise designed for illegal financial gain
to be relevant in racketeering case.
Crimes that can be included in
federal racketeering cases:
- Narcotics dealing
- Mail and wire fraud
Again, these are just few of the many crimes that, under RICO law, are
suspect to association with illegal enterprises. Because each federal
racketeering varies so greatly in scope and circumstance, they can result
in a range of sentences. Federal statutes call for
up to 20 years in prison, and severe fines, if convictions are reached.
