Default Money Laundering 18 USC 1957


Anyone have any experience or knowledge of the above mentioned matter and I have two simple questions one is if a government entity or the government might be alleging that $3 million of money laundering happened however they're only alleging that the fraud was worth $5,000 in the indictment how is that when the statute says that it needs to be $10,000 or more the fraud.

Additionally the USC 1957 violation let's say it's involving property that is titled to a company purchased by a company with company funds and the company was additionally indicted how is the leader of the company on the hook kind of makes no sense when maybe the leader of the company did not own the company but acted in a management capacity derived no benefit of the property.

Just looking for discussion of anybody who may have gone through anything similar these are not the facts of a specific case.

Here's a link to the US Attorney's prosecution manual. Chapter 9 is about criminal cases.

Each federal crime has specific "elements of proof" that must be met in court to obtain a criminal conviction, or even to have a guilty plea accepted by the judge. If you don't have a lawyer to answer your questions yet, my advice is to get one to represent you before you post any more details (even those you say are not related to your case) about your charges in a public forum.

Another resource is the federal sentencing commission's current "sentencing guidelines manual" for the specific crimes you have been indicted for.
