Facing money laundering charges in Tallahassee can jeopardize your future and livelihood. You need an assertive defense from a lawyer with intricate knowledge of complex financial crimes. Connor Hilgenfeldt has spent years honing the talents needed to combat money laundering allegations. He understands prosecutors rely on documents, informants, surveillance and other methods to prove these charges. His defense strategy will vigorously scrutinize the prosecution’s evidence and arguments at every phase of your case.

Under Florida law, it’s knowingly conducting a financial transaction with proceeds from unlawful activity, regardless of the original criminal source. Examples are laundering money from drug sales or tax fraud. Penalties depend on the amount laundered. Under $20,000 is a 3rd degree felony, $20,000-$100,000 is a 2nd degree felony, and over $100,000 is a 1st degree felony with up to 30 years in prison. Civil and criminal penalties are possible.

The best defense is claiming lack of knowledge the money was from an illegal source. But other options exist if that fails. An experienced lawyer can explore defenses or negotiate a plea deal or lesser sentence. Self-representation usually leads to worse outcomes.

We are adept at filing motions to suppress evidence improperly obtained and will tenaciously argue against the admissibility of prosecution evidence lacking foundation. If charges reach trial stage, he has the courtroom skills and resources to undermine the credibility of prosecution witnesses and evidence before a jury.
