Money Laundering to Canada Plea by Zirkind Fails As Will Not Admit To Drugs in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 8 – Benzion Zirkind tried to plead guilty to money laundering charges on October 8.

The plea was not accepted. 

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Denise L. Cote held the change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Cote asked Zirkind what he had done.

He would not admit to knowing that the cash he was sending to Canada was from drugs. He said he thought the purpose was to avoid bank fees.  

Judge Cote had Zirkind confer with his lawyer, but it still didn't work. Judge Cote said they should talk more about it, or the matter will be set down for trial.

The case is US v. Zirkind, 19-cr-463 (Cote)
