Accused Bitfinex Bitcoin Money Launderer Granted Permission to ‘Engage in Legitimate Employment’

On February 8, 2022, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) arrested a couple that is accused of laundering 94,636 bitcoins stolen from Bitfinex in 2016. The DOJ alleges that the tech entrepreneur, Ilya Lichtenstein, and his wife Heather Morgan, conspired to launder billions of dollars worth of bitcoin. The duo could face 25 years in federal prison if convicted. Five months later, a report indicates that a federal judge has given Morgan permission to get a job and “engage in legitimate employment.”
