Cheyenne woman gets prison time for money laundering

Gwenellyn Jackson, 57, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, was sentenced by Chief Federal District Court Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal on April 19, 2016, for conspiracy to launder money. Jackson was arrested in Birmingham, Alabama. She received 30 months imprisonment, to be followed by three years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $100.00 special assessment and a $200.00 fine. This case results from an ongoing Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) joint investigation conducted by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The principal mission of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) program is to identify, disrupt and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering organizations, and those primarily responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply. #shortgo #news
