Extortion includes crimes such as blackmail, bribery, and ransom. The criminal defense attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC are experienced in handling extortion charges. We serve the Capital District area including Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Troy.
They are crimes that involve the use of threats, intimidation, or coercion in order to obtain money, goods, or services. These types of crimes are usually felonies, and as such, are dealt with harshly.
A conviction for extortion can result in severe consequences, which may include:
- Prison time, up to a life sentence without parole
- Severe fines and/or restitution paid to victims
After a person has been charged with extortion, the smartest thing to do is consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. An attorney will guarantee that their rights are protected. A knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can evaluate the case and advise on the best course of action. In many cases, the charges can be reduced or even dismissed.
At Tully Rinckey, we have defended numerous extortion cases. The best defense is an experienced legal team, and we have the experience that counts. Our team consists of a former United States Prosecutor, a former County Court Judge, and a former Assistant District Attorney/Bureau Chief. Put them to work for you!
