A University of Miami professor who helped to author a book about organized crime has been accused of laundering money through Venezuela.
73-year-old Bruce Bagley is a University of Miami professor and collaborator on the book “Drug Trafficking, Organized Crime and Violence in the Americas Today,” released in 2015. He reportedly has an extensive and impressive resume revolving around the topics discussed in the book.
After investigating 17 alleged bank deposits made between 2017 and 2019, the authorities have accused Bagley of starting fake businesses so that he would have accounts in which to store money he was allegedly pilfering from deals he made in Venezuela. According to the indictment, the accounts appeared to be closed after not filing the required annual reports.
