Money Laundering

Money laundering is a crime usually charged by the federal government. It is the illegal movement of the proceeds of specific crimes listed in the law. While money laundering falls within the area of white collar crime, the government usually charges it in connection with the underlying crime. As a result, it is not uncommon to see it charged in the same indictment with a non-white collar crime.

This is a complex area of law. One confronted with an investigation or prosecution must retain highly qualified counsel.
