Los Angeles resident Kunal Kalra pleaded guilty to the sale of methamphetamine and the organization of a scheme for money laundering through bitcoin.
According to the local edition of U.S. News, Calra pleaded guilty to laundering $ 25 million through BTC and distributing methamphetamines. Now he faces life imprisonment, and is also charged with money laundering in Texas.
It is reported that between 2015 and 2017, Calra engaged in the exchange of BTC and dollars, managed a crypto machine and made deals with drug dealers. He sold two pounds of methamphetamine to an undercover law enforcement agent.
Recall that recently another US citizen received a prison term for selling drugs for cryptocurrencies. In addition, in July, a drug dealer with Silk Road was charged with laundering millions of dollars through BTC.
