Representation for White Collar Crime Charges

Money laundering is a relatively common white collar crime defined as the integration of unlawfully obtained money into a lawful institution. A serious federal offense prohibited under Title 18 of the U.S. Code, money laundering involves any financial transaction of funds obtained through some unlawful activity –

  • With the intent to continue or promote the unlawful activity; or
  • With the intent to evade taxes; or
  • Knowing that the transaction is meant to conceal or disguise the source of the unlawfully obtained funds; or
  • To willingly avoid state or federal transaction reporting requirements

While money laundering cases can vary considerably depending on the facts of a case – particularly the amount of money involved, the unlawful activity involved, and the criminal record of an accused individual – the penalties can be incredibly severe. Punishment can include fines of up to $500,000 or twice the value of the property stolen (whichever is greater), imprisonment for up to 20 years, or both.

Money laundering charges can also entail other criminal offenses, including tax evasion, embezzlement, and other various fraud offenses. In some cases, criminal charges for drug trafficking and other types of organized crime – including charges under the RICO act – may be pursued by prosecutors.
