Federal and state laws, such as the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), prohibit the operation of unlawful businesses or enterprises for profit or from illegally profiting from legitimate businesses. This Arizona law, and similar Federal laws, give the government broad powers to investigate and bring criminal charges in matters that may be appear to be tangential, if related at all. The cases are normally multilevel and with many defendants. The amount of paper evidence can look like an unclimbable mountain to the inexperienced defense attorney. Defending against a racketeering charge is challenging and requires a defense lawyer with experience and knowledge of the applicable statutes.
