Man to be sentenced in Milwaukee-area money laundering case

A sentencing date has been set in federal court for the last of eight people who were indicted in an alleged money laundering scheme from a Milwaukee-area company. The SC Johnson company, based in Racine, sued individuals after they say they found a scheme in which a trucking company was deducting kickbacks. The company was awarded millions of dollars for damages, and eight people were indicted in a criminal case.

The last person accused in the scheme pleaded no contest last week to charges of mail fraud and money laundering. He will now be sentenced on April 5 in federal court. These criminal accusations are extremely serious and someone facing such accusations might be wise to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney. They can help a person understand what pleas might be appropriate and what each plea means.

Sometimes people who are accused of severe crimes don't understand the severity and how a conviction could affect their future. An attorney can help a person form a rigorous defense and make sure the person is treated fairly throughout a trial. Sometimes people also accept plea agreements without fully understanding what they mean.

While sometimes plea agreements might seem better than risking a conviction, it is important that those who are accused make an informed decision. The decisions a person makes during their trial could have long-lasting implications. If a person is convicted, they may have a difficult time finding employment in the future and even difficulty finding housing.
