Possible Money Laundering Penalties

Money laundering is considered a Class D felony, however increased values and intentions in performing the crime can augment the charges, and thus increase possible penalties. For example, if you receive compensation for selling stolen goods and then transfer the funds to a group whose intent is to commit a terrorist act, your charges would be elevated to a Class C felony.

Class D felony penalties for money laundering can include:

  • Prison sentence between three months and six years
  • Fines of up to $10,000
  • Permanent criminal record

As with any other crime, repeat offenders may face elevated charges, or will likely receive penalties closer to their maximum. The presence of any aggravating or mitigating factors may also influence the charges and the ensuing penalties.
