Money Laundering 

Money laundering involves disguising the origins of unlawfully acquired property by channeling it through legitimate businesses. In New Jersey, several types of behavior are considered money laundering: 1. Possessing property that a reasonable person would know comes from illegal activities. 2. Participating in a transaction involving such property, aware that its purpose is to conceal its origins or avoid reporting requirements. 3. Preventing a financial institution from filing a mandatory report under state or federal law or inducing such an institution to file a report containing omissions or false information. Apart from state laws, money laundering can also be prosecuted under various federal statutes like the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), the Money Laundering Control Act (MLCA), and the USA PATRIOT Act. These federal laws criminalize financial dealings involving proceeds from specified illegal activities such as drug trafficking, fraud, and racketeering.

Securities Fraud 

The statutes governing securities fraud are written in broad terms, making them susceptible to interpretation across a wide spectrum of market activities. Typically, these laws are invoked to prosecute individuals suspected of engaging in insider trading or various forms of market manipulation. These types of white-collar crimes, also known as investment fraud, may fall under the purview of state and/or federal jurisdiction and are subject to investigation by entities such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), and equivalent state agencies. If you are currently under investigation for or have been charged with a securities offense or investment fraud in New York or New Jersey, it is imperative that you secure legal representation without delay.

In accordance with the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice, embezzlement is legally termed as theft by failure to make required disposition of received property. New Jersey law categorizes this act as a form of theft offense. Embezzlement occurs when an individual entrusted with property appropriates it for personal use. Although embezzlement can be committed by anyone in a position of trust over property, it is more commonly observed among white-collar employees due to the substantial amounts of property they manage and the greater discretion they possess. Embezzlement is subject to penalties similar to those for other theft offenses, which are generally based on the value of the misappropriated property: - $75,000 or more: Imprisonment ranging from 5 to 10 years - $500 to $74,999: Imprisonment ranging from 3 to 5 years - $200 to $499: Up to 18 months of imprisonment - Less than $200: Classified as a disorderly persons offense Individuals convicted of embezzlement may also face fines and could be required to make restitution for the wrongfully obtained property. At Arseneault & Fassett, we have highly skilled and experienced attorneys who can provide expert assistance in such legal matters.
