Minneapolis Money Laundering Lawyer
White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyers in Minneapolis – (612) 444-5020
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
With so much force behind the opposition, you cannot take your chances on your money laundering defense case. Know you have an equally-powerful advocate in your corner by calling (612) 444-5020 and retaining the services of Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. and our criminal defense lawyers in Minneapolis. We have what it takes to contest your charges tenaciously, whether you were investigated as an individual or as the head of a company or corporation.
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.
Our Minneapolis white collar crime attorneys will work diligently to ensure you have the best possible case to present in your defense. We will focus on securing a case dismissal, charge or sentencing reduction, or a not guilty verdict.

1. Don’t Talk to the Police!
It’s crucial to know that while you should remain respectful with authorities, you have the right to remain silent. This a right protected by the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which makes it clear individuals are protected from being compelled to be a witness against him / herself in criminal matters.
It’s important to note that:
- Talking will not help you avoid an arrest. If law enforcement has probable cause to arrest you, then they will arrest you.
- By speaking, you risk making a confession or providing information that can be used to indict you, even unknowingly.
- Even if you feel that information being discussed is “harmless,” it is still in your best interest to invoke your Fifth Amendment right.
