Baton Rouge, Louisiana criminal defense lawyer represented the Defendant charged with Operating an Illegal Money Transmitting Business

Miami Man Sentenced to 41 Months in Federal Prison for Operating an Illegal Money Transmitting Business

From December 2016 to January 2019, Oluwafemi Osinowo operated an unlicensed money transmitting business. He confessed that the business conducted foreign currency exchange business without complying with required federal registration requirements. During the course of operating the business, money was transmitted from third parties from the Middle District of Louisiana and elsewhere to bank accounts located in Miami, Florida. Once the money was in the bank accounts in Miami, Florida, an individual acting as an agent of Osinowo’s business wired the money to a bank in Lagos, Nigeria. Those wire transfers included approximately 51 separate transmissions in the aggregate total of approximately $722,177 dollars.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jeremy S. Johnson.


Defendant was found guilty and sentenced to 41 months in federal prison and three years of supervised release following his term of imprisonment.
