What makes RICO charges so serious?

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, is a federal law designed to combat organized crime.

In a typical organized crime scheme, lower-ranking members actually carry out the criminal acts, and prosecutors can have a hard time implicating the higher-ups who ordered the acts and made money from them.

Police officers have to follow specific laws on what they can do on or in your property and when, and those restrictions extend to the actions of police dogs. Learn what the law says about drug dogs sniffing out your home without a warrant.
