Under Nevada law, money laundering is defined as the act of disguising the origin of money that has been stolen by using a transaction designed specifically to hide the source of the money. It is considered a “white collar crime” and has serious penalties if you are charged and convicted of money laundering in the state of Nevada.
What Will Happen If I Am Convicted Of Money Laundering?
The stakes are high if you are charged with money laundering, and you can expect a fierce prosecution if you go to trial and harsh punishments if you are convicted. If convicted of money laundering, you may face:
- Seizure of your assets
- Up to $500,000 in fines
- Up to twenty years in a state prison
Money laundering penalties will leave you with a permanent criminal record and the consequences will remain with you for the rest of your life.
