What is Racketeering?

Racketeering is a serious criminal offense that involves engaging in a pattern of illegal activities, often as part of an organized criminal enterprise. Under Georgia law, racketeering is governed by the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. Racketeering activities can encompass various criminal actions, such as fraud, money laundering, drug trafficking, and more. These activities are typically carried out by individuals or groups intending to profit from their unlawful actions. Racketeering cases can be highly complex, often involving multiple defendants, extensive investigations, and intricate legal proceedings.

What are the Penalties for Racketeering in Georgia?

The penalties for racketeering in Georgia are severe and can result in substantial legal consequences if you are convicted. Under the Georgia RICO Act, individuals found guilty of racketeering may face:

  • Criminal Charges: Racketeering is a felony offense in Georgia, and those convicted can be sentenced to substantial prison time. The length of the prison sentence depends on the specific charges and the individual's criminal history.
  • Fines: Convicted individuals may be required to pay substantial fines, which can vary depending on the nature and scope of the racketeering activities.
  • Restitution: Courts may order defendants to pay restitution to victims or organizations affected by the racketeering activities. This can include reimbursing victims for their financial losses.
  • Forfeiture: Property and assets acquired through racketeering activities may be subject to forfeiture. This means the government can seize these assets, which can significantly impact the defendant's financial well-being.
  • Civil Penalties: In addition to criminal penalties, individuals convicted of racketeering may also face civil penalties, including monetary damages awarded to plaintiffs in civil lawsuits related to racketeering activities.

Defenses Against Racketeering Charges

Our Atlanta racketeering lawyers are skilled in crafting effective defense strategies, which may include:

  • Insufficient Evidence: Challenging the prosecution's evidence is a common defense strategy. If the prosecution cannot prove each element of the racketeering charges beyond a reasonable doubt, the case may weaken or collapse.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If law enforcement violated your Fourth Amendment rights by executing an unlawful search or seizure, evidence obtained through these actions may be deemed inadmissible in court.
  • Mistaken Identity: Racketeering cases often involve multiple defendants, making it possible for innocent individuals to be wrongly implicated. Establishing an alibi or proving a mistaken identity can be a powerful defense.
  • Constitutional Violations: Any violations of your constitutional rights during the investigation or arrest process can lead to the dismissal of charges or the suppression of evidence.
  • Lack of Intent: Racketeering charges often require proving criminal intent. It can be a strong defense if you can demonstrate that you had no intent to engage in racketeering activities.
  • Coercion or Duress: If you were forced or threatened into participating in racketeering activities, you may have a defense based on coercion or duress.
