Man from Dominican Republic extradited to US for money laundering charges in Newark
A citizen of the Dominican Republic appeared in federal court in Newark Friday for money laundering.
Jonathan Humeau-Hernandez was extradited to the U.S.
Prosecutors say he was part of a criminal conspiracy in New Jersey.
Large sums of cash drug proceeds in the U.S. were laundered through the U.S. banking system and transferred to the Dominican Republic and elsewhere.
Humeau-Hernandez could get 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
