Detroit RICO Penalties

The maximum penalties for a person charged as a Detroit racketeer are stiff and may include up to 20 years time in Detroit prison and enormous fines. In addition to this, forfeiture of the business, personal holdings and any monies accumulated from the criminal activity are usually to be expected in settlement. These cases do not end in criminal court, since they are often re-tried in civil courts where plaintiffs are permitted to bring actions resulting in triple damage awards.

Government investigators are highly trained at uncovering racketeering schemes and will manipulate juries to believe that greed is the only factor - thus negating any sympathetic feeling from the jury. Once a Detroit MI racketeering scheme is uncovered, inexperienced trial defense attorneys often miss critical sections in the law that might be applicable in specific situations. Wise Laws has a team of Detroit attorneys experienced on all aspects of the Detroit laws applicable to racketeering.
