Conspiracy to commit money laundering carries a maximum of 10 years imprisonment and the structuring charge carries a maximum of five years imprisonment.

The case was investigated by agents of the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigations and the FBI. Assistant U.S Attorney Nathan Williams of the Charleston office is prosecuting the case.
