A client departing from the United States to another country was arrested and charged with bulk cash smuggling and failing to file a currency report after airport screeners found $40,000 concealed in his luggage. The client admitted to federal agents that he was transporting the money outside of the United States and did not file a currency report. Thereafter he was indicted in Federal Court in Miami and charged with the offense.
The client hired Erick Cruz who negotiated a resolution to the case, where the client pled guilty to failing to file the currency report and in exchange, the prosecutors agreed to dismiss the bulk cash smuggling count. Thereafter, the defendant proceeded to a sentencing hearing where Erick convinced the judge to impose a house arrest condition as opposed to imprisonment. The client was very happy with the result knowing full well that probationary sentences in federal court are rare.
