What is Money Laundering?

In order to convict someone for money laundering in the United States, the prosecution must show that the defendant concealed money in order to cover up the source, nature, location, and identity of the illegally obtained funds. This does not mean putting the money in a safe or another hidden place. Rather, money laundering involves depositing money in a bank or business to make it appear come from a legitimate source.

The government must also prove that the money originated from a specific federal offense, such as those mentioned above. If the funds did not come from criminal activity, the prosecution cannot obtain a money laundering conviction.
