Money Laundering Penalties
Money laundering is the act of disguising money made from illegitimate means and using legitimate financial institutions and channels in order to convert it into “clean money.” Dirty money involves money derived from unlawful activity such as drug trafficking or fraud.
This crime can be charged either at the state or federal level. A first time offender can be punished at the federal level with up to one year in jail. Fines range from a few thousand dollars to $500,000 or twice the value of the property involved, whichever is greater.
In Virginia, a first offense is a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by maximum prison sentence of one year and a fine of up to $2,500. However, a subsequent offense is a Class 6 felony, punishable by a prison sentence of up to five years.
