The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) was first created to enable prosecution of all Mafia-related activities. However, RICO was written in a way that allows federal law enforcement agencies to indict individuals for any illegal activity that affects interstate commerce. At Turco & Draskovich, our Las Vegas RICO lawyers have years of experience defending clients in federal court, including in cases involving RICO charges.
Our experience has proven to be an invaluable asset to our clients facing racketeering charges in Nevada federal courts. RICO cases often involve numerous charges, charges that are required to prove other charges, and any number of evidentiary exceptions. Because RICO cases are so complex, it is vital that you retain a Las Vegas federal defense attorney who has experience handling cases of this nature.
Our federal trial experience involves more than a decade developing defense strategies for cases involving RICO-related charges. We understand that it can be extremely difficult to face charges for RICO-related crimes, especially with law enforcement and government agencies pressuring you to confess or answer questions.
From syndicated gambling and loan sharking to the commission of violent crimes in aid of racketeering, charges involving RICO can be extensive and confusing. The prosecutors in charge of your case will do everything they can to bend the rules of evidence to impute acts of other individuals to your case.
Our Las Vegas RICO attorneys understand the tricks and tactics the prosecution employ and exactly what it takes to stop this type of evidence from being admitted into the case. We fight aggressively for our clients' freedom on all levels, working to ensure your rights are upheld throughout the investigative and prosecutorial processes.
