US authorities have sentenced a 40-year-old Florida man to six years and six months in prison for conspiracy to commit money laundering. The man had pleaded guilty in June 2022.
The convict was involved in a conspiracy to deliver $1 million in drug proceeds to a money laundering organization. The organization used to help the convict launder the money back to the Dominican Republic.
The convict came into contact with an undercover law enforcement agent acting as a courier for the money laundering organization. In July 2020, while the convict was driving to meet with the undercover officer, law enforcement recovered $1,000,495 in two large bags from the his car. His cellphone data further confirmed that he was involved in drug trafficking and money laundering.
