Money laundering is a serious white-collar crime that bears stringent consequences. By definition, this means a financial transaction that aims to conceal the prime source of illegally obtained money that is made to look legal. This major offense is a federal crime and so does not come solely under the purview of the state.
Money laundering falls under the scope of Florida Statute § 896.101 in the state of Florida. At the federal level, it comes under the scope of 18 U.S.C. § 1956. The punishment can go up to twenty years in prison, along with a $500,000 fine, or a higher amount as per the value of the transaction.
