Florida RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) Act

Miami Racketeering Attorney

 

RICO is a catch all statue. If you have been arrested for a serious crime such as illicit money lending, drugs, or prostitution, the police, or the State may also tack on a RICO charge. It is a very serious charge that should not be taken lightly. If you are charged with a RICO violation contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
