Federal prosecutors have available two sets of statues to dismantle criminal enterprises that function similar to businesses. The continuing criminal enterprise stature targets only drug traffickers who are responsible for long-term elaborate conspiracies. The anti racketeering statute targets offenders working at the top levels of various kinds of criminal organizations.
Federal racketeering statutes target a number of specific offenses, such as conspiracy to obstruct, or obstruction or, interstate commerce by robbery or extortion, travel in interstate or foreign commerce, or use of the mails, with the intent to facilitate any unlawful activity, and any offer, acceptance, or solicitation of bribes to influence an employee benefit plan.
Additional criminal enterprise crimes include but are not limited to; bribery, sports bribery, counterfeiting, mail fraud, wire fraud, embezzlement of Union Funds, murder for hire, money laundering, drug trafficking, prostitution, alien smuggling, and trafficking of counterfeit good.
