Legal Representation for Money Laundering Charges in TX

Defined by Texas law, money laundering is designed to conceal the origin of money obtained through criminal/illegal means. In order to convict individuals of money laundering, prosecutors must prove you conducted or attempted a financial transaction knowing the funds involved were obtained through unlawful means.

Money laundering is a serious criminal offense that should not be taken lightly. Depending on the situation, money laundering can accompany many different charges – which is why legal representation becomes so important.

Prosecutors are quick to add a charge of money laundering to narcotics charges and criminal charges involving the handling of stolen property. All too often, the evidence is convoluted and confusing and often has no connection to the actual charges.

If you are under investigation or stand accused, contact The Law Offices of Jed Silverman for a FREE consultation with a Houston money laundering lawyer.

Texas Money Laundering Penalties

According to Texas law, a money laundering conviction may result in the following penalties:

  • State Felony: if the funds are valued between $2,500 and $30,000
  • Third-Degree Felony: if the funds are valued between $30,000 and $150,000
  • Second-Degree Felony: if the funds are valued between $150,000 and $300,000
  • First-Degree Felony: if the funds are valued $300,000 or more

If the police or RICO authorities have asked you questions about your financial dealings, chances are that you are under investigation for fraud or money laundering. Don't answer any questions or volunteer any information without an attorney present to advise you of your rights. The police cannot compel you to answer any questions. An experienced lawyer will advise you on when it will be beneficial for you to talk and when it will be best to remain silent.
