Legal Question in Criminal Law in Virginia

I am a broker who specializes in getting bank instruments (bank guarantees, and stand by letters of credit) for clients who then will use to finance their various big projects. I charge a fee for doing it, and the fee for the instrument which is sent to the provider of instrument. I was notified by a private investigator who tells me one of my clients stole public funds from a school system although he has documentation of a loan, the investigator tells me I could be in trouble because they were stolen and I received them (now receiving stolen money) although I never knew they were stolen and my client signed a form saying the funds were not of any criminal activity and of clean origins, is he right? and the school system is out of California

No, based upon the facts you've described, I would very much doubt it

(that this investigator is right in regard to his assessment

of your possible criminal liability).
