Money Laundering

Minneapolis Money Laundering Lawyer

Money laundering conjures up images of piles of cash being funneled through a complex web of interconnected corporations incorporated in the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas.  Although the government does prosecute cases of that type, typically, the reality is far different.  Unfortunately, the money laundering statutes are written so broadly that they entangle many unwary good-intentioned citizens in their web.  Under federal law, money laundering includes any financial transaction involving proceeds of a criminal activity knowing that the transaction is intended in part to conceal the source or ownership of the funds.  Thus, for example, selling a house to someone for cash derived from drug dealing could be money laundering if the seller had reason to believe that the transaction was intended to conceal the source of the funds.
