Money Laundering Defense Attorneys in Minneapolis
The crime of money laundering involves collecting finances through illegal means and meticulously trying to hide said finances until they appear legitimate. For example, a money launderer may gather funds through theft or extortion, store the funds in one bank, transfer it to many others, and finally transfer it to their private bank account or use it to make a purchase. Within the process, there are many areas where it can become difficult to see the true source of the money.
Due to the intricacy of money laundering, law enforcement agencies often spare no expense when it comes to researching and investigating such white collar crimes. They will also be backed or directed by federal agencies who will lend near-limitless resources to the case, ultimately bolstering the prosecution.
Federal agencies that may assist with a money laundering case include:
- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
- U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
- Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)
- United States Federal Reserve System

Potential Penalties for a Money Laundering Conviction
As a serious white collar crime that is likely to be charged as a federal violation, the penalties for money laundering upon a conviction will be equally severe. It is not uncommon for a money laundering sentencing to include numerous years in prison, as well as tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. If a company was involved with the money laundering scheme, it could be dismantled through administrative penalties, or simply by permanently staining its reputation.
