Livan Hernandez Under Scrutiny

Ageless Washington Nationals pitcher Livan Hernandez is under investigation for possible money laundering for a Puerto Rican drug kingpin after his name came up during a recent trial.

Hernandez's name was connected to Angel Ayala Vazquez, as well as other celebrities and entertainers. 

Prosecutors presented evidence at the trial ending Tuesday that Puerto Rican drug dealer Angel Ayala Vazquez had a Porsche, a Lamborghini and a warehouse containing a recording studio, a barber shop and a car repair shop registered in Hernandez’s name.

This is almost the same kind of case former NBA player Robert "Tractor" Traylor faced not too long ago. Maybe Livan should've learned something from that.
Special counsel to the U.S. Attorney in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Jaqueline Novas, said that they are looking at who possibly laundered money, but also wouldn't say if Hernandez was going to be targeted for an investigation.
