Organized Crime Research

Research the cases of Sam Gravano, Jonathan Lebed, and Jimmy Coonan. For each of these criminals, analyze their cases in terms of how we have defined organized crime this week. In a 4- to 5-page Microsoft Word document, present a report that summarizes these cases and for each, answer the following questions:
•Does the criminal or his organization (if any) fit into any of the typologies presented in Week 1 lectures?

Provision of Illicit Services
Provision of Illicit Goods
Infiltration of Legitimate Business

•Would you characterize the crimes as white-collar crime or organized crime? Why?
•Explain how the criminal’s ethnic identity played a role in the development of his criminal career.

Explain your reasoning.
