Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO)
As prosecutions of organized crime become more frequent, it’s increasingly important to master the application of the guidelines in racketeering offenses. This course will take you through the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations guideline from start to finish using case-based scenarios. How do you arrive at the proper base offense level, properly determine the underlying offense? How does the guideline interact with Chapter Three (grouping of multiple offenses, offense-based adjustments) and criminal history rules? These questions and more will be answered during this session.
The following scenarios and exercises were reviewed at recent National Seminars on the topic of RICO offenses.
