BULK CASH COURIER GETS PROBATION IN ILLINOIS

A cash courier transporting $43,000, in shrink-wrapped packages, was intercepted on Interstate 88, just west of Chicago, and charged with money laundering, which reportedly has a maximum penalty of seven years' imprisonment under Illinois law. The charges were reduced to a misdemeanor charge of Attempted Money Laundering for the California resident, and he was sentenced to probation, and fined $500 court costs.

Seventy per cent of the funds were retained by Kane County authorities; 30% went back to the courier, under a plea agreement that is extremely disturbing; probation for money laundering ? Clearly, justice was not served here, but the coffers of a suburban Illinois county were.

The next time I see someone reduce money laundering to a misdemeanor, particularly bulk cash smuggling, I will try not to get upset, but it is a travesty.

  2. Called in regarding a delivery and the whole phone call took about 2 minutes, pretty good since I'm a first time customer. I will be definitely using them again.
