How do I find out if the Rico Act was placed on my business and me. I have never been charged.

Someone had told me that the problems I had in my business could be about Rico. They said I was going through tests. I have now lost my business.

???? What kind of business do you own that the Racketeering Act is involved?

Contact a business lawyer or criminal defense attorney to help you.  Who told you? If your business was being investigated, it may be confidential and you will not find out.  Further, how do you know and can you prove your business failed for this reason?

Try to look for an attorney and check his or her record at Washington State Bar.
