Lindsley Georges, 27, and Dave Guillaume, 24, both of Everett, were sentenced on January 19 for their participation in a scheme to launder money that was fraudulently obtained from customer bank accounts. Georges and Guillaume were each sentenced 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 September 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 These checks were provided to Georges and Guillaume by other coconspirators who had fraudulently withdrawn those funds from customer accounts at other banks.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.
