Money laundering is a serious offense, carrying penalties of up to 20 years in prison and fines reaching half a million dollars. Generally speaking, charges stem from an individual’s using a seemingly legitimate business or bank account to filter — or “clean” — ill-gotten money. Since most cases of money laundering also have additional criminal charges attached to them such as drug trafficking or fraud, these types of matters are extremely complex.
Anyone who has been charged with or is under investigation for money laundering should seek the advice and representation of an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The damage that can be caused from this type of crime to both the person and the business involved can be devastating. If convicted, a person’s reputation and standing in their community will be forever tarnished, and the felony conviction will follow them for the rest of their lives. Acting quickly to retain qualified legal counsel is the best chance an individual has to beat these serious charges.Money Laundering is About More Than Just Money Laundering
