Money Laundering Defense by Dallas Leading Federal & State Defense Attorney Mick Mickelsen
Leading Federal & State Defense Attorney Mick Mickelsen explains Federal Money Laundering Statutes through a website resource.
Dallas, TX - New money laundering resource developed by Dallas attorney Federal criminal defense lawyer Mick Mickelsen.
In a new article, Mick Mickelsen, a Texas Superlawyer with decades of experience in white collar crime defense, explains the central federal statutes involved in money laundering and related crimes.
"The two principal Federal money laundering statutes are 18 U.S.C. 1956 and 1957," Mr. Mickelsen explains, "Section 1956 prohibits various activities involving criminal proceeds, including transactions that conceal the nature of the proceeds. Section 1957 focuses on spending criminal proceeds."
Mr. Mickelsen's article explains the legal definitions of the terminology used in the statutes, in addition to clarifying why willful ignorance of criminal activity in money laundering cases still violates these laws.
"Although the statute requires that the defendant has knowledge that the financial transaction involved proceeds of criminal activity, it does not require that the defendant have knowledge of the exact nature of the criminal activity," says Mr. Mickelsen.
For a tangible example of how this type of criminal defense case works, read about Clint Broden of Broden and Mickelsen Criminal Defense Attorneys representing a client charged on three counts of money laundering in federal court.
