Passed by the United States Congress and into law in 1994, the Money Laundering Suppression Act (MLSA) is a set of laws restricting the use of financial institutions and businesses to hide money obtained through illegal means. Intended as a means to reduce federal financial fraud, federal prosecutors often resort to the MLSA to charge individuals with federal crimes, particularly when large amounts of cash transactions are involved, such as illegal drug trafficking.
Like felony conspiracy charges, tacking on money laundering charges is often a prosecutor's ploy to throw something at the wall, to see what sticks.
