Money laundering is a process or
series of actions through which income of illegal origin is concealed,
disguised, or made to appear legitimate to evade detection, prosecution,
seizure, and/or taxation. Illicit proceeds must be “laundered” to make it appear
as though the funds were generated through some legitimate means. This allows
criminals to enjoy the proceeds of their criminal activity without raising
The legal authority to prosecute money laundering cases is found in 18 U.S.C. § 1956. According to federal law, an individual convicted of money laundering shall be sentenced to a fine of no more than $500,000, or twice the value of the property involved in the transaction, whichever is greater. They may also be sentenced to no more than 20 years in prison.

Joffe Law represented a woman who had grown up in a small island nation just south the state of Florida. Our client had been duped into depositing monies from a family member who lived there and worked who worked for the national telephone company. Unbeknownst to our client, the Internal Revenue Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration and HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Task force) were actively investigating this conduct. Our client was contacted by law enforcement and immediately called us. Our client was able, through our diligent efforts, to obtain a letter of immunity from the United States Attorney's office and an agreement not to prosecute. The government initially contended that it could in fact indict our client for money laundering, bank fraud and wire fraud. Joffe Law was able to save our client from spending large legal fees and was able to keep the her from ever being charged.
