This Note will first discuss the technical elements of a RICO violation and set forth the four separate crimes that constitute the statute's central provisions. After then examining RICO's crucial statutory definitions and the confusion reflected in their application, this Note will evaluate the various judicial interpretations of the statute and propose a solution for amending the statute that is harmonious with legislative intent and accommodates the needs of both society and the individual.
