Ventura Money Laundering Defense Attorney

What is Money Laundering?

Money laundering is the process of making “dirty” money clean, which is done by taking money obtained through criminal or illegal activity and then transferring it to financial institutions or other legitimate uses to avoid making the source traceable. Not only do suspect face the possibility of charges from the state of California, but also federal charges as well.

What is the Maximum Sentence & Fine for Money Laundering in California?

There are two types of money laundering laws in California: general money laundering and money laundering in connection with drug crimes. Both forms of money laundering are considered “wobblers,” meaning that prosecutors may choose to charge either form of the white collar crime as either a misdemeanor or a felony based on the defendant's criminal history and the facts of the case.

  • A misdemeanor conviction for general money laundering results in a maximum jail sentence of one year and a fine of up to $1,000.
  • A felony conviction for general money laundering is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of three years and a fine of up to $250,000.
  • Money laundering involving drug crimes is considered a felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of four years and a fine of up to $250,000.

Furthermore, money laundering is a federal crime as well. Federal law makes it a crime to knowingly conduct a financial transaction with the proceeds of illegal activity, with the intent either to promote illegal activity or to conceal the illegal source of money.

  • Federal money laundering is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 20 years and a fine of up to $500,000.
