A: Saludos:

El Código Penal de Puerto Rico define el delito de extorsión como "Toda persona que, mediante violencia o intimidación, o bajo pretexto de tener derecho como funcionario o empleado público, obligue a otra persona a entregar bienes o a realizar, tolerar u omitir actos, los cuales ocurren o se ejecutan con posterioridad a la violencia, intimidación o pretexto de autoridad será sancionada con pena de reclusión por un término fijo de tres (3) años.

Si la persona convicta es una persona jurídica será sancionada con pena de multa hasta diez mil

dólares ($10,000)."

El estado puede crear leyes que adelantan politica publica y en beneficio del pueblo.

El cobro de $5.00 en el marbete para esos fines es habilitado mediante una ley administrativa. Bajo esas faculades y la definición en ley, no se configura el delito de extorsión.
