Money laundering is essentially using money gained through illegal means by concealing the illegal origin of the funds or transaction. Money laundering is serious and can result in state or federal criminal charges. Drug trafficking and prostitution are common money laundering schemes. If convicted, drug dealers and human traffickers can face severe criminal felony charges.
Structuring cash transactions is a common method of money laundering. This consists of handling financial transactions in a specific manner to avoid state or federal reporting requirements. One way to do this is to divide a large sum of money into several smaller deposits in an effort to appear innocent.
How Are Conspiracy And Money Laundering Related?
The essence of a conspiracy is the agreement to commit an unlawful act. In Hawaii, a person is guilty of conspiracy to commit a crime if:
- Two or more people agreed to commit an offense.
- One co-conspirator committed an overt act in furtherance of the agreement.
Money laundering often involves two or more people engaging in activity designed to conceal illegal behavior. The overt act is the concealment of money laundering. Conspiracies are often proven by one conspirator testifying against the other — or others.
Will My Assets Be Seized If I Am Charged?
Asset forfeiture laws allow the government to seize any property traceable to or considered proceeds of criminal activity. The burden is on you to prove by a preponderance of evidence that your property is not subject to forfeiture. Due process and civil rights violations can arise in cases involving civil asset forfeiture. Our firm has the knowledge and experience to protect your property and your future.
