Name: People v. Athar
Case #: S119975
Court: CA Supreme Court
District CalSup
Opinion Date: 07/14/2005
Summary

A sentence enhancement for money laundering under Penal Code section 186.10(c) may be imposed even where the defendant is not convicted of money laundering under Penal Code section 186.10(a), but only of conspiracy to commit that offense under Penal Code section 182. Section 182(a) requires that a conspirator receive punishment “in the same manner and to the same extent as is provided for the punishment of” the target felony. Thus, an enhancement under section 186.10(c) may be imposed on a defendant convicted of conspiracy to launder money.
