* MONEY LAUNDERING: The U.S. attorney announced today that Alberto Solaroli, 60, of Jacksonville, Fla., had pleaded guilty to money laundering in a $120,000 wire transfer from One Bank and Trust of Little Rock to a bank in Florida. He was indicted in 2013. The money was part of a $1.5 million line of credit Solaroli arranged with a Oneback senior vice president. He eventually received all the money and never repaid it. The loan was based on a false financial statement. He'll be sentenced later. A former senior vice president, Gary Rickenbach, was indicted last year for allegedly conspiring to use federal Troubled Asset Relief Program money to hide the loss resulting from a $1.5 million bad loan.
