Reputed Mob Boss Granted Bail in Federal RICO Trial
Prosecutors will often charge people with an organized crime statute to increase the potential sentence/severity of the consequences of a conviction. Whether it is a state or federal case, charging an individual with being part of a corrupt organization will certainly lead to harsher penalties if convicted. Organized crime charges are not particular to Mafia/La Cosa Nostra cases. It is not uncommon that organized crime charges are filed against legitimately employed individuals such as health care providers such as medical practices, government workers/political corruption cases, police officers and corporate entities in fraud cases. Mr. Pagano has represented doctors, lawyers, mortgage brokers, real estate brokers, business people, union officials and alleged mobsters, gangsters, motorcycle gangs and even police officers, in organized crime cases.
Local state and federal agencies have used a wide arsenal of investigative and prosecutorial weapons to combat organized crime. These have included the extensive use of wiretaps, witness immunity and witness protection programs, special grand juries, harsh sentencing guidelines and mandatory sentencing schemes. Perhaps the most important prosecutorial tool is the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, which was passed in 1970. The act makes it a crime to acquire an interest in, to participate in the affairs of, or to invest the profits acquired from an enterprise through a pattern of racketeering activity. In the period after 1980, most significant organized crime prosecutions involved the use of the RICO statutes.
Mr. Pagano has participated in some of the most notorious organized crime trials – including some trials that have lasted many months – and cases in state and federal courts in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia; state court bookmaking/gambling cases, Russian Mob cases, motorcycle gang cases (The Pagan Motor Cycle Club), the Gosnell abortion case, Philadelphia License and Inspection case and Mafia or La Cosa Nostra cases. Mr. Pagano has won acquittals in RICO cases in federal and state court.
