Federal Crimes/RICO Act

In the current political climate, it seems that almost any measure could be passed to "protect Americans" from anything that threatens them. What many changes in federal law have truly done, however, has been to allow the federal government to increase penalties for ordinary crimes that have nothing to do with terrorism.

In such times, you need the best defense possible to ensure that federal law enforcement and federal prosecutors don't violate your rights.

If you are under arrest on a federal drug charge, attorney Joseph Colarusso is available to take your case immediately. Contact Joseph J. Colarusso, Attorney at Law, at his Stamford, Connecticut, or White, Plains, New York, office by calling 203-977-2415 or 203-325-2200.

Defending Against Weapons Trafficking, Racketeering And Other Federal Crimes

Although more and more activities are being criminalized and although the government is granting itself greater power to investigate crime in secrecy in the guise of protecting national security, seldom is there any connection between these activities and the "war on terrorism." For example, in recent headlines, the federal government has attempted to grant itself special powers to enforce laws against methamphetamine under the U.S. Patriot Act.
