Money Laundering Charges Can Result In Severe Penalties
Money laundering is an offense that you can be charged with, for just about any type of action and is usually found in connection with other allegations of illegal activity. This crime is used to enhance penalties being sought by prosecutors and can severely impact the outcome of your case.
Christopher A. Wellborn, P.A. is a former prosecutor who is familiar with how money laundering investigations are conducted and how the government uses this charge when building conspiracy and other types of cases against people. Now as a York County and South Carolina money laundering defense attorney who devotes his entire practice to criminal defense, he fights on behalf of clients being targeted with this type of white collar crime.
At Christopher A. Wellborn, P.A., we handle any case involving money laundering charges, including when this accusation also follows allegations of:
- Drug offenses
- Business or bank fraud
- Wire fraud
- Mortgage fraud
In many of these cases, the money laundering charges are important, and Mr. Wellborn aggressively investigates and attacks them because the rest of case may hinge on this charge. The penalties also increase when a money laundering charge is attached, and charges may include enhanced prison times, fines and even forfeiture of your assets, including your home where you and your family reside.
