In Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act of 1970 (RICO) the federal government deems racketeering to be a pattern of wrongdoing such as running illegal gambling operations and prostitution rings.
Racketeering offenses involve the operation of any illegal business or enterprise, including fraudulent scams for profit. The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and similar state racketeering laws give the government authority to prosecute those accused of racketeering. RICO / Racketeering cases are complex.
A number of criminal and white-collar offenses fall under the umbrella of racketeering activity including murder, drug transportation/distribution, gambling, embezzlement, extortion, theft, money laundering, bribery, and more.
