It is a primary goal of many criminal organizations to generate profits, but when they achieve this, it becomes necessary to hide the illegal source of the income, otherwise federal agencies may become alerted to the illegal activity taking place. Money laundering is the process of disguising criminal proceeds from their illegal origins, and is utilized by individuals and criminal organizations throughout Florida and the rest of the United States.
Money laundering is a federal offense, and if you or someone you love has been charged with this crime, you are involved in a very serious situation, and you need to find an attorney right away.
