Money Laundering Cases

Information about Money Laundering

Money laundering refers to the attempt to conceal or disguise the source of illicitly acquired funds from illegal activities. This is the most basic definition of money laundering, but it can include many different types of practices such as false accounting, tax evasion, creating fictitious cover-companies, drug crimes and trafficking. Essentially anything that turns “dirty” or illegally obtained money into “clean” money with untraceable trails, can be classified as money laundering.

The act of money laundering is punishable both on state and federal levels and requires that attorneys be qualified and well versed in handling cases of this magnitude.

Since money laundering cases can be difficult to prove, because of the complexities of the transactions involved, extensive, long-term investigations will most likely take place by state and/or federal prosecutors when they are attempting to convict an individual or organization of this crime.
