KSAL Staff - December 10, 2014 9:44 am

A north-central Kansas man faces more than 16 years in prison for a vehicle crash that killed a teenager and her father.

A California man is facing federal charges in connection with an alleged Dickinson County, Kansas, crime.

According to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s Office, 68-year-old Andris Cukurs of Glendale, California, is charged with one count of attempted money laundering. The government is seeking forfeiture of more than $314,800 seized Nov. 14, 2014. The crime is alleged to have occurred in Dickinson County.

If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a fine up to $500,000. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Debra Barnett is prosecuting.
