WA Legal Roundup: Division I

State v. Jain

Darren Rogers met Yatin Jain in 2002. Mr. Jain sold Mr. Rogers large quantities of marijuana. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the land of make believe that another Mr. Rogers was famous for visiting. Mr. Rogers decided to get out of the drug sales business when he became aware that he was being investigated. Mr. Rogers was later arrested for money laundering by the Snohomish Regional Drug Task Force. He agreed to assist the Snohomish Regional Drug Task Force in setting up a buy from Mr. Jain.

Mr. Jain had spent a considerable sum of money in cash on real estate. The money could not be traced by the Snohomish Regional Drug Task Force to any legitimate source of income. After the Snohomish Regional Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at Mr. Jain’s residence, Mr. Jain transferred title to his real property to his father.

Mr. Jain was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, and two counts of money laundering for the transfer of the properties.

While Jain was charged with only two counts of money laundering, the state presented evidence involving seven transfers of real property. The state conceded this error on appeal and the Court remanded the case.

Jain also objected to the “to convict” instructions to the jury, but the Court found that the instructions were proper.
