AUTO DEALER GETS 40 MONTHS FOR MONEY LAUNDERING

An Idaho Falls automobile salesman was sentenced top forty months in Federal Prison for Conspiracy to Commit Money Laundering this week. He placed bogus purchaser names on sales documents, and failed to submit the required cash sales reports, for individuals whom he believed paid him with criminal proceeds. Joseph Monte Johnson also received three years of Supervised Release,  the successor to parole, and was fined $6000.

US law enforcement agents, who targeted Johnson, and other individuals who will be going to trial in their cases,  advised the defendants that they were career criminals who wanted to launder their money through automobile purchases. Was the 40 month sentence appropriate ? What do you think ?
