PACIFIC LAWYER RECEIVES FIVE YEARS PROBATION FOR MONEY LAUNDERING

An attorney from the American territory known as the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands has received a sentence* of five years probation, after pleading guilty to two counts of laundering of monetary instruments, in US District Court in Guam. Danilo Aguilar,  who reportedly participated in a scheme originating in Hong Kong, where only lawyers are involved, passed two counterfeit cashier's cheques in a local bank.  The court file reflects that there will subsequently be an Amended Judgment requiring restitution in the amount of $184,947.49, which is the bank's loss.

Mr. Aguilar, who cooperated in the criminal investigation, has had his license to practice law suspended in Guam, and also in Hawaii.
