Anyone who fails to reveal the origin of money that has been illegally obtained is, by definition, guilty of money laundering. According to federal law, this course of action is illegal – and numerous federal statutes are aimed at prohibiting this course of action – and also make related activities illegal. The penalties for the transgression of these statutes can range from lengthy jail sentences and various other penalties. Therefore, it makes sense that if anyone is the subject of an investigation into money laundering activity, they make it a priority to consult with an expert Washington DC Money Laundering Lawyer, like Nabeel Kibria of Ervin Kibria Law, to fully understand their options in light of these serious charges.
As a standard with other cases, the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt is the job of the prosecution – in this case, the federal prosecutor. In the case of money laundering, this obliges the government to show that:
One of the most important ways an expert white collar criminal attorney can help your case is to sow doubt about various elements of criminal activity. Of course, this depends entirely on the unique circumstances of your case. It is worth repeating that the government must prove the case ‘beyond a reasonable doubt. The judge will be certain to remind the jury that this is the acid test of guilt – if there is reasonable doubt, then you are almost assured that the case will be found in your favor.
There are other defensive strategies that a DC federal money laundering or white collar criminal lawyer might raise. Such as the possibility of entrapment or an illegal search. Again, this depends on the merits of a particular case. The facts of the case can also assist the attorney in a plea bargain which can lead to a conviction for a lesser offense. The seriousness of a money laundering charge – and the severe penalties mean that choosing a capable and experienced attorney is of the utmost importance. Making that choice is also essential when you are under investigation for money laundering.
US Code Section 1956 goes into detail about both the illegality of money laundering and the prohibitions governing the illegal act – it states that an individual may be guilty of money laundering when:
The courts are burdened with an ever-increasing number of cases involving money laundering. Healthcare fraud is one example (Medicaid fraud is particularly prevalent). In addition, money laundering is often part of fraud investigations where the purchase of a home (or other assets) is designed to hide the proceeds of illegal activity. Another example is where the individual engages in illegal activity and uses the ill-gotten gains to pay rent or other household expenses – or put that money into a bank account.
An expert federal criminal defense attorney with the correct experience will have intimate knowledge of the federal court system. Therefore, retaining the services of an expert white collar criminal defense attorney such as Nabeel Kibria of Ervin Kibria Law from the moment one becomes aware of the money laundering charge is the best way to protect oneself.
