Portland, Oregon, RICO Defense Attorney
Mail Fraud • Securities Fraud Defense • Collecting Illegal Gambling Debts
Prosecutors in Oregon use the broad definition of "criminal enterprises" under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and the Oregon Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (ORICO) to prosecute a variety of activities, including:
- Mail Fraud
- Securities Fraud
- Collection of Illegal Gambling Debts
- Tobacco Taxation Fraud
Because of the broad interpretation of "enterprises" under the racketeering statutes, prosecutors often prosecute cases with less evidence than they would if they didn't use the criminal enterprise element of the racketeering statutes. For more information regarding RICO, ORICO, or to discuss your particular matter, contact criminal defense attorney John J. Tyner today.
Many individuals find themselves facing charges of racketeering stemming from activities they did not necessarily know might be considered criminal activities. Additionally, RICO charges may mean stiffer penalties.
