Civil RICO Cases & Health Care Fraud

Orlando Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys

While the American justice system does not allow you to be twice put in jeopardy in a criminal court for the same crime, you can be tried in both criminal and civil court. In a criminal case, you face the possibility of prison, as well as financial penalties. In a civil case, you face financial penalties and potential loss of your professional license. In a civil RICO case, the "victim" may sue for treble damages, plus attorney fees. Depending upon the nature of the crime, the loss of a civil case could cost you millions of dollars. If a jury returns a verdict against you in a civil RICO case, the state licensing agency may seek to revoke your professional license.

At the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., in Southern Florida, our Orlando federal criminal defense attorneys provide a comprehensive defense in civil and criminal cases, in state and federal courts, and at the trial and appellate level. We stand willing to defend healthcare providers and health-related businesses throughout Florida and other states. Contact us immediately or call (407) 901-5852. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day.

You Could Face Civil Penalties Even if You Are Not Convicted of a Crime

Even if you are found "not guilty" in criminal court, an alleged victim can bring a civil RICO case seeking financial compensation or restitution for monetary losses, damage to reputation or loss of business as a result of your actions.

The challenge is significant because the burden of proof in a civil case is much less than in a criminal case. In a criminal case, the jury must find you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In a civil case, a jury can arrive at a conviction based on "a preponderance of the evidence." In other words, the jury only has to believe that it is more likely than not that you committed the crime in order to find against you.

Orlando criminal defense attorney Mark L. Horwitz, is experienced in both criminal and civil cases. He recently handled a civil RICO case defending a medical professional against RICO violations based upon mail fraud arising from billing for medical services.
