Money laundering charges stem from allegedly fraudulent car sales

There are many ways in which individuals could choose to defend against criminal charges. Of course, the exact routes they may follow depend heavily on the type of allegations with which they have been charged. For instance, a person facing serious federal charges for money laundering may need a more substantial defense than someone facing a minor infraction.

It was recently reported that one man in Florida is facing money laundering and other allegations after allegedly duping multiple people. Apparently, the man had worked as a salesman for a Porsche dealership and created a shell corporation using the same name as the legitimate dealership. He then purportedly made sales orders for over 30 customers for future Porsche models. However, those models did not and apparently would not exist.

The man used the shell corporation's bank account to accept deposits from the customers for the fraudulent sales. In all, the man obtained approximately $2.2 million. The man has already had an initial court appearance, and he is facing charges for money laundering, wire fraud and mail fraud. It was noted that the dealership where he formerly worked has been cooperating with authorities since learning of the alleged scheme.

Money laundering and other federal charges could come with steep penalties if the man is convicted. He undoubtedly hopes to avoid any dire outcomes, and he may find it to his benefit to explore his legal options closely. Finding the path that he feels most suits his needs and wishes for handling his case may come easier to him if he utilizes local Florida legal resources.
