What punishments do I face?

Racketeering is considered a RICO (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization) in Tennessee and is a Class B felony. You need to retain a skilled criminal defense attorney immediately if you have been accused even if there is no substance to the charge.

Those convicted could face the following penalties:

  • Up to $25,000 in fines
  • Up to 20 years in prison for each count of racketeering
  • Forfeiture of money or property illegal obtained
  • Possible house arrest
  • Restitution with interest
  • Probationary period

You do not need to be proved to have personally committed any illegal acts yourself for a racketeering charge, only that you oversaw an organization which regularly performed illegal activities. Because of the complex nature of racketeering and RICO cases, you need an expert Memphis white collar crimes attorney to protect you.
