Racketeering laws have been passed at both the state and federal levels in an effort to combat organized crime. Both state and federal law specify numerous pre-existing offenses such as kidnapping, extortion and murder as “predicate” racketeering offenses when committed in connection with organized criminal activity. Racketeering also includes money laundering, which is conduct intended to conceal or disguise the proceeds of criminal activity.
