2074. RICO Prosecution Memorandum -- Identification Of The Defendants

This section should identify each proposed defendant by name and aliases, date and place of birth (if known), criminal arrests and convictions, current employment and major business or labor interests (if any), and connection to or membership in an organized crime family, corrupt union or other criminal organization. If relevant, the defendant's health, age and potential for flight to avoid prosecution should be noted as factors in determining whether he/she will actually stand trial or receive incarceration. The memorandum should also indicate whether a defendant's current incarceration is likely to diminish the merit of the proposed charges.
