Dallas men indicted for money laundering

GREENVILLE — Three Dallas County men have been indicted on money laundering charges.

Frank Harvey III, Jeffery Michael Kelly and Donnie R. Neal were each indicted by the Hunt County grand jury Friday in connection with their arrests by the Greenville Police Department in November 2013.

The grand jury convened Friday for the final session of its six month term, during which local prosecutors have been presenting evidence in felony cases for consideration by the 196th District Court. The panel issued 58 indictments Friday, including eight charges which were issued sealed pending the arrest and arraignment of the person or persons named in the indictments. The grand jury issued 330 indictments during its term.

A new grand jury will be seated in July to begin a six-month term of considering cases for the 354th District Court.

Harvey, 53; Kelly, 33; and Neal, 48, all of Dallas, were taken into custody on the afternoon of Nov. 19, 2013 at the 89 mile marker of Interstate 30.

Harvey and Neal were free on bond Friday, while Kelly’s bond was revoked and he was arrested again in March. Kelly remained in custody at the Hunt County Jail Friday, in lieu of a total of $135,000 bond on the charges.

Harvey, Kelly and Neal were each indicted on one count of money laundering in the amount of more than $200,000 and one count of unlawful use of a criminal instrument.

The indictments allege the three did “knowingly acquire, conceal, possesses and/or transport the proceeds of criminal activity”, with a value of more than $200,000. The 2009 Nissan Pathfinder in which the three were traveling at the time of their arrest was alleged to have been used as an instrument as part of the criminal activity.

The money laundering charge is a first degree felony, which carries a maximum sentence upon conviction of up to five to 99 years to life in prison and an optional fine of up to $10,000. The criminal instrument charge, a second degree felony, carries a maximum sentence upon conviction of from two to 20 years in prison.

Arraignment dates on the indictments had not been scheduled as of Friday evening.
