What is Money Laundering?

Money laundering is a very serious criminal offense involving the process of making illegally acquired funds appear legitimate by passing them through a complex sequence of financial transactions. It's a practice that often involves concealing the true origin of funds, obscuring their ownership, or making illegal gains seem like legitimate income. Money laundering can be linked to various criminal activities such as drug trafficking, organized crime, corruption, tax evasion, and more.

What are the Penalties for Money Laundering in Tennessee?

In the state of Tennessee, the penalties for money laundering are severe and can have life-altering consequences. Tennessee law categorizes money laundering offenses into different classes, each carrying its own set of penalties. Convictions for money laundering offenses may lead to:

  • Substantial fines
  • Forfeiture of assets
  • Lengthy prison sentences

The severity of the specific penalties depends on factors such as the amount of money involved, the nature of the underlying criminal activity, and the defendant's criminal history.

Defense Against Money Laundering Charges

Common defenses against money laundering charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: One of the primary elements the prosecution must prove in a money laundering case is the defendant's intent to engage in illegal activity. If it can be demonstrated that you did not knowingly or intentionally participate in money laundering, it can weaken the prosecution's case.
  • Insufficient Evidence: A strong defense often revolves around questioning the quality and sufficiency of the evidence presented by the prosecution. Challenging the credibility and reliability of the evidence can create reasonable doubt and strengthen your defense.
  • Mistaken Identity: In some cases, individuals may be wrongly accused of money laundering due to mistaken identity or confusion. Establishing a solid alibi or presenting evidence that points to an alternative explanation can be instrumental in building your defense.
  • Unlawful Search and Seizure: If evidence was obtained through an unlawful search and seizure, it may be inadmissible in court. If evidence was obtained without a proper warrant or without valid consent, we could challenge its admissibility, potentially leading to a reduction or dismissal of charges.
  • Entrapment: Entrapment occurs when law enforcement induces or encourages someone to commit a crime they would not have otherwise committed. If you can demonstrate that you were coerced or manipulated into engaging in money laundering activities by law enforcement or informants, it can be a valid defense strategy.
  • Lack of Knowledge: Proving money laundering requires demonstrating that the accused had knowledge of the illicit origin of the funds. If you can show that you were unaware of the illegal source of the funds or believed the transactions were legitimate, it can be a strong defense against money laundering charges.
  • Procedural Violations: Money laundering cases involve complex financial transactions and documentation. Any procedural violations or irregularities can be used to challenge the admissibility of evidence or even lead to the dismissal of charges.

    “I can honestly say I was not disappointed.”

    I took a trip out to TN and got in to some trouble in Clarksville and needed representation for a case while I was I back in my home state. I went to Grimes, Sensing & Clemons feeling distraught and like I had no hope, seeking a solid defense attorney that would actually fight for my case and get me the best possible deal. I left feeling comfortable and confident. I can honestly say I was not disappointed, the only time I needed to come back to TN was for the sentencing(mind you cases may differ) and unbelievably Jeffery Grimes was able to pull a rabbit out of a hat and get a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor as well as talk down the court fines... I strongly suggest Jeffery Grimes as your defense attorney for any legal issues you may have, also their fees are very reasonable and they will do payment plans. Thank you very much Grimes, Sensing and Clemons.

    “The outcome for my request was better than I could have hoped for.”

    I hired Mr Sensing to assist me with the modification of a parenting plan that just wasn’t working anymore. I hired another lawyer in the Clarksville area that did not do their due diligence. Mr Sensing and his team were great throughout the process. Emails and phone calls were actually returned in a timely manner! Which wasn’t the case with the lawyer I used before. I had access to all my court documents and was always kept informed on what was going on with my case. Lastly Mr Sensing is very experienced and knowledgeable in his field. The outcome for my request was better than I could have hoped for, and I honestly feel like that was due to Mr Sensing.

    “Best defense lawyer you could ask for.”

    Grimes is the best defense lawyer you could ask for. He was able to take what would generally be a felony for sure and get it down to a misdemeanor and a fine. If you have him as your lawyer, you won't have anything to worry about.

    - Dennis H.

    - David L.
    “Fought with me the whole 2 years my case took for me to get the time with my son I’ve always wanted.”

    Mr. Sensing is an excellent attorney. He fought with me the whole 2 years my case took for me to get the time with my son I’ve always wanted. I will definitely recommend his services to anyone and I will be going back to him if I have any issues in the future. Also Pat and Amy are awesome!!
