Defending You Against Federal Charges Of Money Laundering
With potential penalties that include thousands of dollars in fines and decades in prison, money laundering charges are particularly serious. People who suspected that money laundering was occurring but did not report it can be just as seriously punished for that failure to report.
The attorneys of Sapone & Petrillo, LLP, have a reputation for creating successes for clients charged with complex white collar crimes and as skilled trial lawyers. From our offices in New York City and Long Island, we have defended clients across the country. We have the experience necessary to examine the individual transactions at play in your case and to build a defense that protects your freedom and your future.
About Money Laundering
Charges of money laundering – intentionally concealing the source of illegally obtained funds in order to make them appear legal – can be made on either the state or federal level. Money laundering crimes include:
- Concealing the source of funds that were received as a part of an illegal activity like prostitution or the sale of drugs
- Failure to report to the IRS that you have accepted payment of $10,000 or more
- Structuring funds in order to avoid reporting those funds to the IRS
- Fraudulent wire transfers
Depending on the defendant’s involvement in the crime and the severity of the crime, consequences can involve prison sentences of three or more decades and fines of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Money laundering can also be tied to a wide variety of other criminal activities that make the legal challenge you face even more complex.
Sapone & Petrillo’s attorneys have extensive experience defending clients accused of fraud, and we have the ability to examine the details of your case on a transactional level. We can also defend against any additional allegations related to the money laundering. In or out of the courtroom, we will work to create the best possible outcome for your case.
