Often performed in conjunction with racketeering and other organized white collar crimes, money laundering is the crime of hiding the location, source, or ownership of illegally-obtained wealth. By doing so, criminals can successfully hide the wealth they have unlawfully obtained, and thus eliminate some of the evidence against them. As such, the United States government has made money laundering a federal crime and dedicated extensive resources to tracking down and stopping money laundering operations.

Federal Penalties of Money Laundering
Money laundering has been connected with a number of other illegal activities, including possible funding of things like international terrorism and other organized crime efforts. As a result, the federal government has placed monumental penalties on money laundering, particularly when the laundered money can be shown to have aided one of these groups.
There are four degrees of money laundering charges in New York, all of which are considered a felony. Penalties for money laundering can include:
- Permanent criminal record
- Jail time
- Large fines
- Loss of rights
- Restricted access to employment, housing, ect.
Fortunately, money laundering cases are far from un-winnable; there are several defenses that are accepted by the court and that your attorney may look to use on your behalf. For example, if you can demonstrate you had no knowledge of the illegitimate source of the money in question or that it was obtained by criminal activity, your charges could be dropped.
