Money Laundering Charges
This is the crime of passing illegally earned funds through a legal body in order to mask their origin. If you have been charged with this crime, you need to retain a skilled Philadelphia criminal defense attorney right away. If you are being looked at by the police for this crime, then it is crucial to know your rights.
It is hard for state or federal prosecutors to build strong money laundering cases. A lot of times their eagerness to charge the crime negates the few tidbits of supposed evidence. If you are being charged with money laundering, the case put forth by the prosecution at trial must be able to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that your intentions were to conceal the origins of the money. As a former prosecutor, our lawyer knows how to best attack their case from every angle. The sooner you secure sound counsel, the sooner we can start building a strong defense. Our firm offers a free consult to review the merits of your case. We will fully explore every detail from top to bottom so there are no surprises.
If you are convicted of money laundering, you may face up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $500,000 or up to twice the value of the laundered funds. With such severe penalties, it is vital that you contact a diligent attorney right away. Know that a transaction does not have to be completed in order to constitute as money laundering. Even an attempt to make the transaction is enough for an indictment. Money laundering can also involve property, not just cash.
