Cigarette Magnate Accused of RICO Conspiracy and Other Unlawful Activity

In 2007, cigarette magnate Rodney Morrison was charged in a 100-count indictment with murder, arson, kidnapping, possession of a firearm and RICO conspiracy in connection with the distribution and sale of untaxed cigarettes from a Suffolk County, NY Indian reservation. If convicted of these charges, Mr. Morrison faced a life sentence without parole.

Mr. Morrison hired Murphy, Falcon & Murphy to defend him against these allegations. After a protracted nine-month trial, which included fifteen days of jury deliberations, Mr. Morrison was acquitted of all charges except a single handgun possession count.

Attorneys: William H. “Billy” Murphy, Jr.
