Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) Charges

RICO was originally intended by the government to prosecute organized crime rings. Today, many different crimes can fall into this category, including:

  • Money laundering
  • Conspiracy
  • Extortion
  • Racketeering
  • Mail fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Illegal gambling schemes
  • Investment scams
  • Prostitution

Continuing Criminal Enterprise (CCE) Charges

CCE is very similar to RICO, but it is intended solely to prosecute criminal activity involving illegal drugs. The statute focuses on drug traffickers and drug rings that participate in complex, federal drug crime conspiracies. This can include:

  • Counterfeiting drugs
  • Drug dealing and trafficking
