I got indicted for money laundering last year in October for using my bank account to receive money from Kansas which they said is from drugs I have no involvement with any drug related issue or co defendants i don’t know them. The evidence against me is only when person a texts person B to deposit to my account and when I go to the bank to withdraw but because i have a prior from 8 years ago everyone else got dismissed and I’m still in this case it is a federal case.
Changing question to criminal defense category for answers from KS lawyers.
The Government cannot convict you of laundering monetary instruments unless it proves, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you acted with knowledge and criminal intent. The fact that you have a previous criminal conviction, if legally relevant, may serve to imply that you had knowledge and intent, but that cannot be the Government's only proof in support of a conviction. – Joshua Sabert Lowther, Esq., Atlanta, GA.
