BOSTON - A Southampton man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Springfield for growing marijuana and laundering the profits.
Gregory Krzanowski, 39, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Michael A. Ponsor to three years of probation, a $2,500 fine and forfeiture of $300,000. In October 2012, Krzanowski pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute marijuana and three counts of money laundering.
In August 2011, Krzanowski operated an indoor marijuana grow house. On three dates in 2009, Krzanowski made cash deposits of the proceeds from this marijuana business into the bank account which was in the name of another legitimate business that he operated.
United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; William P. Offord, Special Agent in Charge of the Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigations in Boston; and John J. Arvanitis, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s New England Field Division, made the announcement today. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex J. Grant of Ortiz’s Springfield Branch Unit.
