Two Everett Men Sentenced for Money Laundering Conspiracy
BOSTON – Two Everett men were sentenced today for their participation in a scheme to launder money that was fraudulently obtained from customer bank accounts.
Lindsley J. Georges, 27, and Dave Guillaume, 24, were each sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs to time served and three years of supervised release, with six months spent in home confinement. Georges and Guillaume were also ordered to pay restitution in the amounts of $667,243 and $457,243, respectively. On Sept. 1, 2021, the defendants pleaded guilty to one count each of money laundering conspiracy.
In December 2017 and January 2018, Georges and Guillaume collectively deposited over $600,000 in checks into business bank accounts that they controlled. These checks were provided to Georges and Guillaume by other co-conspirators who had fraudulently withdrawn those funds from customer accounts at other banks. Georges and Guillaume subsequently withdrew a portion of the funds in cash and checks.
United States Attorney Rachael S. Rollins and Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Division, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Leslie A. Wright and Christopher J. Markham of Rollins’ Securities, Financial & Cyber Fraud Unit prosecuted the case.
