United States v. Vigneau
United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit
187 F.2d 70 (1st Cir. 1999)
Vigneau (defendant) was charged with money laundering. At trial, the prosecution sought to introduce into evidence several Western Union “To Send Money” forms in their entirety. The forms contained Vigneau’s name as the sender. At the time, Western Union did not require proof of the sender’s identity. The district court admitted the forms in their entirety, including Vigneau’s personal information, and convicted Vigneau. Vigneau appealed.
