Have you been accused of racketeering? Are law enforcement officers making it sound like your only way out is to plead guilty to offenses for which you are innocent?
The Burden Of Proof
In order to adequately prove that you are guilty of racketeering or some organized crime offense, the prosecution will have to clearly establish that you knowingly involved yourself with people or an organization involved in a pattern of criminal activity. This can be difficult for any prosecutor to do since it means tracking down some form of documentation that ties you to illegalities the organization was involved with. In addition, the prosecution must show your full knowledge of or willing participation in these activities.
What Is CoCCa & RICO?
Colorado’s Organized Crime Control Act (CoCCA) was very much influenced by and based on the Federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO). When law enforcement threatens RICO and COCCA charges against you, there is a chance this is attempt to add additional claims. Don’t let prosecutors and law enforcement officials bully you into accepting a guilty plea when you are not guilty of their superfluous charges.
Some of the crimes you may be accused of could include any combination of some of these offenses
- Acts Of Assault
- Deceptive Business Practices
- Money Laundering
- Threats Of Assault
