Being fully advised of the relevant facts, the Court finds that the defendant pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit money laundering and he kept as profit $100,000.00 of the funds involved the conspiracy. In addition, the funds identified above were involved in the conspiracy to commit money laundering offense and are forfeitable under 18 U.S.C. § 982(a)(1).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the motion of the United States is GRANTED.
It is FURTHER ORDERED that, pursuant to the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 982(a)(1) and Rule 32.2(b)(2), Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, the United States is entitled to forfeit the $100,000.00 involved in the offense that the defendant kept as profit.
It is FURTHER ORDERED that, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 982(a)(1) and Rule 32.2(b)(2), Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, the funds identified above are FORFEITED to the United States of America for disposition according to law.
Because the $100,000.00 in proceeds was dissipated by the defendant, the United States may seek, as a substitute asset, pursuant to 21 U.S.C. § 853(p), as incorporated by 18 U.S.C. § 982(b)(1), forfeiture of any of the defendant's property up to the value of $100,000.00. The Court retains jurisdiction to address any third party claim that may be asserted in these proceedings, and to enter any further order necessary for the forfeiture and disposition of such property.
DONE and ORDERED.
