Get Criminal Defense For Your Money Laundering Charges
Money laundering is the process by which the illegal origin of a sum of
money is concealed so that it appears to have come from a legal source.
Often times, a fake business is the "front" of a money laundering
operation. However, having a fake business is not a requirement to be
charged with money laundering. Money laundering is often charged in association
with other crimes, such as
tax evasion, or
wire fraud. If you are facing a white collar crime charge with money laundering on
top of it, the money laundering charge will act as an enhancement, and
will increase the severity of the crime, as well the consequences you
will be facing if convicted.

Defending Against White Collar Crimes
One of the key elements of money laundering is intent. The person that
is accused of committing this crime must knowingly commit a financial
transaction with the proceeds from some other illegal activity with the
expressed intent of:
- Continuing an illegal activity
- Hiding these proceeds from the IRS
- Concealing the ownership or control of these proceeds
- Avoid reporting the transaction to state and federal authorities
Beyond intent, a sufficient amount of money needs to be moved through the
system. Money laundering is a serious crime because of the affect it can
have on the worldwide economy. Because of the nature of money laundering,
often occurring across state lines, or in several businesses at once,
it is often tried as a federal crime. A federal money laundering charge
can result in some serious penalties if you are convicted. Any money laundering
conviction can result in probation, restitution, community service, monetary
fines and jail or even prison time.
