Many individuals are charged with crimes, many of our clients are charged with crimes; they really did nothing wrong and are completely innocent. Even though the burden of proof is on the government to prove someone guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, that’s the pie in the sky analysis. The truth is you can’t just lay back, assume that the government is going to be virtuous, and do the right thing.
If you’re charged with money laundering, it’s a serious charge and we like to start investigating the case immediately to prove that the allegations of the government is bringing forth is not true; that be might through the investigation of witnesses. That might be by showing the money laundering charges, which are predicated on certain underlying criminal acts such as theft, different types of fraud, or non fraudulent acts, to sort of break the barrier of the government’s analysis. If they can’t prove a specific underlying act, then they can’t prove there’s money laundering.See all videos
