Knoxville RICO Attorney: Powerful Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer
Any organization member who commits two or more certain specified crimes within a 10 year period could be charged with racketeering under RICO.
These cases can be very complex because a large number of different criminal offenses can fall under RICO, including:
- Money laundering
- Drug trafficking and distribution
- Armed robbery
Accusations of RICO violations can involve long, intrusive investigations by well-funded agencies. Penalties on conviction -- in addition to lengthy prison terms, steep fines, and civil liability -- can include forfeiture of all assets determined to have been obtained through a pattern of organized crime.
You need a Knoxville criminal defense lawyer with the knowledge and experience to thoroughly examine your case and aggressively challenge any weakness in the prosecution's case against you. Attorney Kurtz is dedicated to crafting a strategic defense for the best possible outcome in your case.
