Acting U.S. Attorney Weiss stated, “The Court’s sentence properly reflects the serious nature of structuring, which is, at its core, a form of money laundering. Mr. Czap’s conduct helped to conceal the proceeds of fraud and allowed the crime to go undetected for years. While he didn’t personally steal the money, he enjoyed the benefits of it. Individuals contemplating similar conduct should understand that their crimes will have the most serious of consequences.”
The case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Lesley Wolf. Acting U.S. Attorney Weiss thanked the investigators for their hard work in pursuing this investigation.
