Money laundering involves keeping money that you know comes from illegal activities or changing it into assets or property.

This offence is closely related to the "dealing with the proceeds of crime" offence in section 193C, but it is considered more serious.

Money laundering is covered by section 193B of the Crimes Act and comes in three forms, each with different seriousness and penalties:

1. If you knowingly handle money from illegal activities and use it to hide its illegal source, you could be sentenced to 20 years imprisonment.
2. If you knowingly deal with money from illegal activities but don't hide its source, you could be sentenced up to 15 years imprisonment.
3. If you deal with money from illegal activities and were careless about whether it was illegally obtained, you could be sentenced up to 10 years imprisonment.

Remember, these are the maximum penalties and are reserved for the worst cases.

If you're charged with money laundering, it's crucial to seek advice from our skilled criminal lawyers as soon as possible.
