San Francisco Client Sentenced to Probation for Racketeering and Money Laundering

In San Francisco Federal District Court, our client was facing 20 years in prison for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) 18 U.S.C § 1962(c) – (Conspiracy to Conduct Enterprise Affairs Through a Pattern of Racketeering Activity) and money laundering charges. After several years of aggressive negotiations with the United States District Attorney's Office and creative arguments at sentencing, client was sentenced to probation with no prison time. Client was originally ordered to pay over a million dollars in a forfeiture proceeding, and after follow-up negotiations with the Assistant United States Attorney, we were able to convince the United States Attorney's Office to resolve our client's forfeiture matter for less than $3,000.
