New charges will be brought against Hussein Ali “Mike” Yassine, convicted last week of money laundering in a federal court.

On Friday, Yassine will be indicted for filing false tax returns for his company, Yassine Enterprises, in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Yassine Enterprises was the target of a multi-year undercover federal investigation into suspected cocaine distribution. As a result of the investigation, 11 people were arrested and charged and eight downtown clubs were seized by the federal government.

Authorities say Mike Yassine and his brothers Hadi and Steven used the business as a front for the cocaine distribution ring.

Last week, Hadi and Mike were found guilty of money laundering. They are scheduled to be sentenced in January.

Steve was found not guilty of the money laundering charge. He will be tried on drug charges on Monday.
