The defendant pleaded guilty to Counts One and Two of the Information which charge him with mail fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1341, and money laundering, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1957, and the United States has established that the defendant obtained $639,206.31 in proceeds as a result of those offenses.

The United States moves under 18 U.S.C. §§ 981(a)(1)(C) and 982(a)(1), 28 U.S.C. § 2461(c), and Rule 32.2(b)(2), Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, for entry of a $639,206.31 forfeiture money judgment against the defendant. The motion for entry of a forfeiture money judgment is GRANTED. The defendant is liable for a forfeiture money judgment in the amount of $639,206.31, which represents the amount of proceeds he obtained as a result of the mail fraud and money laundering.

The United States may seek, as a substitute asset in satisfaction of this judgment, forfeiture of any of the defendant's property up to the value of the money judgment. Jurisdiction is retained to enter any order necessary for the forfeiture and disposition of any substitute asset and to address any third-party claim.
