I recently won a victory in federal court. My client was indicted on federal money laundering charges. My client was a banker at Wells Fargo. The prosecution’s theory was that my client assisted four members of a drug conspiracy in helping them conceal their money by assisting them in making deposits and not filing any unusual activity reports. Three members of the drug conspiracy testified against my client. Unfortunately, the main organizer of the conspiracy had lied in the past and lied on the stand. The case basically came down to who you believe – the organizer of a drug conspiracy who lied to you on the stand more than once, or my client. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported the story here. Needless to say, it took an incredible amount of work to win this case. Federal victories are few and far in between. I am very proud of this accomplishment and extremely happy for my client.
