FINALLY, A JUDGE NOT AFRAID TO SENTENCE A MONEY LAUNDERER TO AN APPROPRIATE SENTENCE

In US District Court in Texas, a Nigerian who led a Business Email Compromise (BEC) fraud was sentenced to 135 months in Federal Prison, and ordered to repay $5m. A codefendant received 78 months. Restitution, in the amounts of $5m and $1m, respectively, were also ordered. It appears that, finally, a member of the Federal Bench has let the punishment fit the crime. The defendants' crew stole over $10m.
