Smith Convicted of Money Laundering for Illegal Alcohol Operation

The Franklin News Post reports that Jody Alton Smith and Margaret Smith have been found guilty on charges related to money laundering, conspiracy, and distribution of illegal whiskey in Western Virginia.

A jury will later decide if they will have to forfeit thousands of dollars in property and money. Agents from ABC and ATF raided the illegal still in Halifax and destroyed four 1,000-gallon blackpot stills, along with thousands of empty jugs, hundreds of pounds of sugar and two copper condenser coils. Four other people connected with this scheme have also pleaded guilty to money laundering and conspiracy.
