Racketeering Charges in Nevada
Racketeering charges can be filed against anyone engaged in organized crime. But contrary to popular belief, these charges are not limited to those in the Mafia. Anyone engaged in an alleged criminal organization – a business, casino, biker gang – can be leveled with these serious criminal allegations.
At Christiansen Trial Lawyers, we have extensive experience in defending clients against racketeering charges. We understand the nuances of the federal and/or state RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) statues that govern these affairs. We are prepared to offer you a powerful legal defense against the charges you are facing.
RICO Charges And Criminal Defense
Prosecutors may pursue RICO charges to enhance penalties for other criminal offenses. Also, identifying an organization as being engaged in criminal activity allows them to “round up” multiple defendants for the same crime.
Racketeering charges can be associated with a number of criminal offenses, including, but not limited to:
- Drug crimes
- Cyber/Internet crimes
- White collar crimes
- Real estate fraud
- Money laundering
If you are facing racketeering charges, it is important to have an attorney on your side who is experienced in handling state and federal criminal defense matters. Our lawyers have handled numerous federal cases and are intimately familiar with the legal procedures and sentencing guidelines that play heavily in these cases. We understand the severity of the charges you are facing and will do everything in our power to help you achieve a favorable legal result.
