Michael’s client was charged as a co-conspirator in a sophisticated money laundering prosecution in the Western District of Washington. The case involved international financial transactions that were purportedly made to mask the identity of proceeds from marijuana sales and other specified unlawful activity. Notwithstanding a maximum confinement period of 20 years, a plea agreement was reached wherein the government would seek no more than 36 months in custody. At the time of sentencing, we sought a significant departure based on our client’s post-offense rehabilitation. Acknowledging the substantial post-offense rehabilitation, the Judge sentenced our client to 12 months and 1 day in a low security facility.
