Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. An individual who is a member of an organization that has committed any two or more criminal acts throughout the course of 10-years can be charged with racketeering. Further more, the racketeer must relinquish all unjustly obtained wealths and interest in any business gained through a pattern of racketeering activity.
