Sentence Of Time Served Federal Money Laundering
February 9, 2019
The Scenario: A U.S. citizen abroad in Brazil was charged with money laundering. Our client suffered through deplorable Brazilian prison conditions before we were retained as his attorneys. Once we took over his case, we pushed to have him returned to the U.S., where we could advocate for a fair result.
The Results: After successfully negotiating a plea and securing our client’s extradition from horrible Brazilian prisons, we persuaded the judge—known for her harsh sentences—to impose a sentence of time served. The very same day our client was sentenced, he was reunited with his wife and family, just in time for the New Year.
