Money Laundering

Case Summary:
The defendant was charged with a single count of felony Money Laundering. The charge arose after a K-9 hit on a package at a Fed-Ex facility. The police confiscated the package and obtained a search warrant to open the package. In the package the police found more than $30,000 in cash and a T-shirt. The package had been mailed FROM an unidentified person in Texas. The package was mailed TO an unidentified person in Ashland, Oregon. Further, the address on the package was a non-existent address. The police subsequently made contact with the defendant (who lived at an address similar to the address on the package) to inquire about the package. The defendant informed them he didn't know anything about the package. The case was dismissed after the defendant indicated he would be setting the case for trial.

Attorney comments:
"The government's case here was weak. In fact, the evidence was so weak I had a hard time understanding why the case was filed in the first place. Fortunately, the case was being handled by a prosecutor who was willing to view the evidence (or lack thereof) objectively. After a few back and forth emails and a phone conversation the DA was willing to dismiss the case prior to my client setting his case for trial. From start to finish this case was only open for about 2 months before we secured a dismissal. As great of an outcome as this was, it really highlights how quickly/easily a person can find themselves a target in the government's pursuit to get convictions and steal money."

Jackson County, Oregon
