MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- An Internal Revenue Service tax analyst has been charged with laundering money obtained from marijuana sales.
The U.S. attorney's office in Memphis says 62-year-old Maggie Cooper was indicted Thursday on charges of money laundering and conspiracy.
Prosecutors say Cooper would buy items for other people, using money that came from their marijuana trafficking activities.
The indictment alleges that Cooper allowed bank accounts to be opened in her name for another person to use to buy and sell marijuana.
If convicted, Cooper faces a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
Her lawyer did not immediately respond to a phone message Sunday.
