What is forfeiture?

Video Transcription

When the state or federal government believes that criminal activity has taken place, one component is punishment, criminal charges. But another component is forfeiture. They want to seize a vehicle if it’s used during the commission of a crime. They want to seize a house if that was the scene of a crime, for example, a grow house. They want to seize boats, airplanes, conveyances as we call them. They want to seize money. That’s happening all of the time now. They get a drug dog to alert, which of course is complete fraud anyway, because everyone’s money is tainted with drug residue. But they get the dog to alert, and they take money. Sometimes they don’t even arrest the person who has the money, and then they move to seize it. That’s called forfeiture.

If that happens to you, it’s essential that you get a lawyer that understands the forfeiture laws and proceedings, because forfeiture can be civil, or it can be criminal.
