US authorities have sentenced a 50-year-old Illinois woman to 14 months in jail and a $10,000 fine for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Her 32-year-old son, whom she aided in the conspiracy involving hundreds of pounds of marijuana, had received a 7.5-year prison sentence in May 2022.
The woman helped her son in laundering drug proceeds to expand his drug distribution operations by maintaining many different marijuana storage areas. Moreover, the son was in possession of a large volume of cocaine that he intended to sell too.
In February 2022, the woman pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit money laundering and conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute marijuana.
