Accused of Money Laundering?

Money Laundering in Denver

Attorney Serving Denver and Surrounding Counties

When federal prosecutors accuse you of money laundering, who better to handle your defense than a lawyer who has gone against federal prosecutors his whole career? I am a Denver money laundering defense lawyer at Law Offices of David L. Owen, Jr., P.C., and am a former federal public defender.

This means that:

  • I have worked within the government, but on your side.
  • I am fully familiar with federal criminal legal processes.
  • I have handled numerous cases involving federal money laundering charges.

Money laundering charges are very serious. The charge occurs when the benefits of a crime are transformed into money or some other form of asset. It can also be seen as a financial scheme used to benefit a party. My firm has handled many cases involving money laundering charges and I know the effective defense strategies I can use on your behalf.

What is the Minimum Jail Time For Money Laundering?

If you are facing a felony money laundering charge, the minimum jail time is 16 months and up to four years. The fines is a staggering $250,000 or twice the amount of money laundered. For the purposes of calculating the fine, the court imposes the higher of the two amounts. For a misdemeanor money laundering charge, there is no set minimum penalty. Instead, the court is limited to a maximum jail sentence of one year and a maximum fine of $1,000. However, a felony money laundering conviction features a minimum jail sentence of 16 months and a minimum fine of $250,000.

How I Can Help Protect Your Future

Alleged money laundering occurs in conjunction with another crime, such as:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Gambling
  • Conspiracy
  • Wire fraud
  • Mail fraud

I understand the nature of money laundering charges, how they relate to other charges and why prosecutors choose to add them to other charges. I address the primary criminal charge; if you are proven innocent for drug distribution, for instance, the money laundering charge is then dismissed.

My experience includes 18 years as a federal public defender and many more years as a private practice defense attorney. I can provide the diligent, aggressive and knowledgeable legal help you need at a difficult time. Contact me for a no-charge consultation and effective legal help.
