Fraud in Violation of the Racketeering and Organized Crime Act
In United States of America v. Ryan D., the United States charged over
a dozen people who worked at the Hanford Nuclear Site with major fraud
against the United States government for allegedly conspiring with each
other to charge the government for time which was not actually worked.
During the course of plea negotiations ten different people entered into
guilty pleas. My client, Perry H., refused to enter into any bargain.
The government produced over three million pages of documents. A jury
trial was held which lasted over four weeks. The jury came back and found
Perry H. not guilty on all counts.
Are You Accused of Committing a Federal Drug Crime?
One of the most common offenses that can be considered a federal crime
are those related to
drug crimes. While it is true that generally larger issues – such as wide scale
drug trafficking – attract federal attention, there is nothing to
stop the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) or the Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA) from getting involved in lesser offenses. This means
that you could be challenging the power of the FBI just for selling or
possessing an illicit substance, such as several ounces of cocaine. If
you have been charged with a federal drug crime, you cannot afford to
wait to get legal representation.
