Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Not exactly sure what your question is about, but a Civil Fraud case can certainly be made, and most likely also a Criminal Theft charge also. Illegal Income is still income that must be reported by the Recipient, and can be a legitimate business expense for the Defrauded Party. The 1099 could probably be used as part of a Defense, to infer the alleged Victim's knowledge before, during and after the money being paid to the Recipient (or Thief).

William Wolf's answer There is a lot of information that's not here that makes this more difficult to answer.
You don't indicate whether this is a State prosecution or a federal one. Both have jurisdiction to prosecute.
If it's a State prosecution, and you're charged, and you can't afford a lawyer, you will be appointed a lawyer by the judge. If the case is in Illinois, chances are the defense lawyer will be from the local County Public Defender's Office where the case is pending.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer No, not unless you were personally involved in the money laundering crimes yourself. However, if your ex-boss knows that you are aware of the money laundering, she may either try to get you to lie about it for her, or--worse yet--might lie about you being involved to the law enforcement authorities investigating the crimes. Consider hiring a lawyer now.
Bernard Crane's answer Pretty much the same, but not entirely. Its like that scene in Seinfield, where Newman is trying to impress a girl with his postal knowledge and smugly looks at her and says, "All certified mail is registered, but not all registered mail is certified."
All corporate crime is white collar, but not all white collar crime is corporate.
White collar crime refers to financially motivated, nonviolent crime, usually committed by business or government professionals. Corporate crime...
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Not really. "White-collar crime (or corporate crime, more correctly) refers to financially motivated, nonviolent crime committed by business and government professionals." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-collar_crime
Richard Samuel Price's answer If the house is yours, and not in the estate, then you would have to bring a petition under Probate Code section 850 to challenge the title to the property. Discuss this with your attorney.
