Money laundering is the process of using the profits of an illegal activity and funneling them into a seemingly legitimate business in order to hide where the profits originally came from. It is not a crime of money laundering if someone simply acquires the proceeds from, for example, illegal drug sales. He would then have to put that money into a business. Often, the business itself would not survive but for the capital from the illegal activity.
Defending against a charge of money laundering can require extensive scrutiny of large amounts of documentation, often over a long period of time. A prosecutor must prove that the defendant intended to place illegally obtained capital into a business. In addition, he must also prove that the defendant received, or expected to receive, money back from the business, as this would give the proceeds the appearance of coming from a valid source.

Our firm has the know-how to confront and aggressively deal with zealous prosecutors. Money laundering is often dealt with in a federal court, which means that a conviction will usually have heavier penalties than those at the state level. Sentences of 10 to 20 years can result as well as the seizure of money and assets.
