1. "Offense" is inaccurate

From DOJ:

Conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine;
attempted possession of 12 kilos of cocaine with intent to distribute;
attempted possession of 9 kilos of cocaine;
attempted possession of 75 kilos of cocaine;
attempted possession of 10 kilos of cocaine;
conspiracy to commit money laundering;
money laundering ($1.5 million);
structuring monetary transactions
