A federal grand jury has indicted a Baltimore defense attorney for racketeering, drug and money laundering conspiracies.
Kenneth Wendell Ravenell, 60, of Monkton, Md., is facing federal charges of racketeering conspiracy, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and narcotics conspiracy. The indictment was returned late on September 18, 2019.
According to the indictment, Ravenell violated the “legitimate and lawful purpose of the law firm where he worked,” in order to enrich himself and another by getting payments from a drug trafficker client and his associates in exchange for telling the client and his associates how to evade law enforcement and continue their trafficking.
