Cover Smith, Hogan, and Ormerod's Criminal Law

33. Money laundering (additional chapter)  

David Ormerod and Karl Laird

This chapter discusses the offences in the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 which criminalize dealing with the proceeds of crime. These are extremely broad offences with many features which could be characterized as being draconian as successive governments have sought to combat serious crime by targeting not just the offenders (who may commit a money laundering offence in relation to their own criminal conduct), but all those who assist in the disposal of criminal proceeds. These offences have generated a huge volume of case law, much of which has reached the House of Lords and the Supreme Court. This chapter analyses how these offences relate to handling stolen goods.

Cover Ashworth's Principles of Criminal Law
Principles of Criminal Law takes a distinctly different approach to the study of criminal law, while still covering all of the vital topics found on criminal law courses. Uniquely theoretical, it seeks to elucidate the underlying principles and foundations of the criminal law, and aims to engage readers by analysing the law contextually. This tenth edition looks at issues such as the law’s history and criminal law values, alongside criminal conduct, actus reus, causation, and permissions; criminal capacity, mens rea, and fault, excusatory defences; homicide; non-fatal violations; property crimes; financial crimes; complicity; and inchoate offences. A special aim of the book is to bring an understanding of business activity—in particular small business activity—closer to the centre of the stage, in a discussion of the values protected by the criminal law and of the way in which the law shapes its principles, rules, and standards. A large proportion of criminal offences are drafted with the conduct of businesses, as well as individuals, in mind.
