Attorney General Report to the White House on Crypto Criminal Regulation Recommends Amendments to 18 U.S.C. § 1960 (Unlicensed Money Transmitting Businesses). Let's discuss those proposed amendments regarding range of punishment and fines. Section 1960’s penalty provisions: "Under existing law, violations of § 1960 are punishable by a maximum of five years’ imprisonment, a term materially less than that prescribed for analogous fraud (20 or 30 years) and money laundering statutes (10 or 20 years)." "Enforcement efforts would benefit from increasing the statutory maximum sentence to 10 years (from five) and by adding an enhanced penalties provision, under which individual criminal fines would double—and corporate criminal fines would triple for violations involving a money transmitter’s business of more than $1 million in a 12-month period to reflect the seriousness of the conduct at issue and allow for sentences more in line with the Guidelines range called for by the Sentencing Commission."
