The acronym RICO stands for Racketeer-Influenced Corrupt Organization, and in general applies to any illegal enterprise which receives money as a result of a pattern of racketeering. Racketeering occurs when a criminal individual or organization creates a “problem” and then offers to solve it for a fee. Taken together, RICO laws target those criminal organizations which systematically create and perpetuate “problems” with the purpose of “solving” such problems and receiving financial or material benefit as a result.

Under New York RICO statutes, a person can be charged with having been a part of a criminal enterprise when he was employed or associated with such an enterprise, despite his knowing the nature of the of its criminality.
He can be considered culpable if he:
The law considers a criminal enterprise to be any continuous group of people who together engage in criminal conduct, who have a defined structure to their association, and whose criminal activity goes beyond a simple aggregation of individual criminal acts.
RICO violations carry heavy penalties. As class B felonies, RICO convictions can result in up to 25 years in prison, a fine of triple the amount the defendant gained from committing the crime (in certain cases), and even asset forfeiture.
