WANTED SA following developments in the field of bulk cash smuggling posts this update for readers who will want to read the decision of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court of Appeals in the case styled Juan Moya-Rodriguez vs. United States*. the Defendant, whose full name is Juan Antonio Moya-Rodriguez, departed the US on a flight to Panama City, Panama, but prior to arriving his flight Immigration was allerted that he was carrying a large amount of cash and was denied entry due to an irregular visa.
When he returned to the United States, he failed to report $120,000 concealed in his clothing. After his conviction, an appeal followed. The argument of his counsel, that he did not violate the reporting requirement, is instructive, as is the Court's reasoning in affirming his conviction.
