Violation of the RICO Act
Conspiracy and racketeering can sometimes be charged in conjunction and are both illegal in the United States. In October of 1970, the United States passed a law known as the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act 18 U.S.C. §§1961-1968 that allows law enforcement to arrest and charge individuals with racketeering if they commit any 2 of 35 crimes over a 10-year period. Some crimes that can be a sign of RICO and result in serious criminal charges include:
- Money laundering
- Other white collar crimes
