A Pennsylvania Magisterial District Judge, a Director of Public Safety, and a Deputy Constable, in Bucks County, north of Philadelphia, have all been charged, in a five count indictment alleging money laundering. They reportedly took cash, understood to be the proceeds of crime, from undercover officers, and laundered it through local bank accounts.
The defendants also attempted to broker the sale of a bar to the undercover officers, believing the purchase price to be the proceeds of drug trafficking, and health care fraud. The case was filed in US District Court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
Readers who wish to review the complete text of the indictment can find it under US vs. John I Waltman, et al, Case No.: Cr 16-509 (ED PA).
