The appellant challenges her conviction of alleged conspiracy to launder monetary instruments, alleged wire fraud, and alleged money laundering. Mere spending of fraudulently obtained funds does not by itself satisfy 18 U.S.C. §1956(a)(1)(B)(i). The trial court's judgment is affirmed, except the conviction for violating §1956, which is vacated. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 11-11120, 02-01-2013.
