Club 935 owner gets 9 months in prison for money laundering

The owner of Club 935, Adolph Shiver, was silent after he walked out of the federal courthouse where a judge sentenced him to nine months in prison for his conviction on tax and money laundering charges.

“He's got no further comment than what he's said in court,” Shiver’s attorney said.

During sentencing, Shiver apologized to the judge.

“I made some mistakes,” he said. “I thought I could run my nightclub but it was overwhelming. I did take the money. I was wrong."

Shiver was charged after officials said he agreed to launder $50,000 from a drug trafficker, who was also a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration source, in 2013.

Agents said Shiver also filed a false tax return.

His attorney pushed for nine months prison time, stressing Shiver immediately returned the money and has agreed to shut down Club 935, a venue that residents  of Wesley Heights say brings violence.

Neighbors, who also were in court, remain concerned about the fate of the property itself.
