Our Attorneys Successfully Handle Federal and State RICO Charges
Providing Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act defenses
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) enhances criminal penalties and allows civil action when a criminal organization commits unlawful acts as a group. Enacted as part of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970, RICO was originally intended to prosecute Mafia-related activity. However, law enforcement often applies RICO very broadly to prosecute cases in which prosecutors may claim that loosely tied friends, colleagues or acquaintances are part of a enterprise engaged in activity that falls within the RICO statutes.
Since our founding in 1978, Burke, Miele, Golden & Naughton, LLP has represented individuals throughout the Hudson Valley, including Orange County and Rockland County. With offices in New City and Goshen, NY, we help those who have been charged with serious crimes.
