What is Money Laundering?

Money laundering is a common white collar crime, meaning that it is a non-violent, financially motivated offense. Money laundering involves the concealment of illegally obtained money through various financial transactions or through immersion in legitimate ventures and businesses. The goal is to conceal the source of money – which was obtained through illegal means. Money laundering may be committed by an individual or by an organization.

Due to its complexity, money laundering can be a devastating charge. In many cases, prosecutors may pursue additional charges, including fraud and the offense(s) by which the money was obtained. In some cases, prosecutors may also choose to pursue heightened penalties against criminal organizations that commit money laundering by charging them under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

Money Laundering Penalties

Under Federal law, money laundering is a serious felony offense that carries harsh penalties. These include:

  • Up to 20 years imprisonment;
  • Fines up to $500,000 or twice the value of money laundered (whichever is greater); or
  • Both fines and imprisonment
