LINCOLN — An Omaha man has agreed to surrender his McLaren sports car and pay $5 million in restitution as part of a plea agreement for a federal money laundering charge.
Jeffrey Stenstrom, 42, of Omaha, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a federal charge of conspiracy to commit money laundering. He faces up to 20 years in prison, a fine of $500,000 or twice the amount of the laundered funds, or both, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Omaha.
Stenstrom has agreed to pay restitution in excess of $5.1 million to Darland Properties LLC, an Omaha real estate firm.
As part of his sentence, he also agreed to forfeit his interest in a 2020 McLaren 600LT Spider, multiple trucks, various items of jewelry, a residence in Arizona, multiple properties in Nebraska, currency and multiple life insurance policies worth in excess of $2 million.
Stenstrom is scheduled to be sentenced June 2.
Meanwhile, he also faces sentencing for income tax evasion in a different matter. Stenstrom could get five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or both, on that offense. He has agreed to pay $1.9 million in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service.
