Money Laundering And Enhanced Penalties
Money laundering occurs when an individual or organization attempts to promote or conceal illegal activity by engaging in a transaction that involves proceeds from the activity.
This charge is often pursued in conjunction with other criminal charges such as drug crimes, fraud or other cases where the accused person has obtained money or other property illegally. In many cases, prosecutors may include a money laundering charge to seek enhanced penalties for other offenses.
Because allegations of money laundering frequently involve other alleged crimes, it is important to work with a lawyer who has a thorough understanding of many different criminal law matters. I have been practicing criminal law for more than 35 years, fighting virtually all types of criminal charges.

Money laundering charges are often filed in federal court, which has high stakes and a complex set of rules.
