ability to prove that you knew about the criminal activity by which the
proceeds were obtained. From there, the penalties are based on the amount
of money that was involved in the alleged offense.
The following amounts will generally result in the subsequent penalties:
Between $1,500 and $20,000: a state jail felony punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and up to two
years in jail.
