Southwest Ohio Drug Forfeiture Attorney
When a person is facing criminal charges or has been arrested for a drug crime, the law allows for the seizure of certain property that was used to commit the crime or that was purchased with proceeds from the sale of the drugs. The seizure of the property is referred to as forfeiture. Houses, land, cars, cell phones, cash, bank accounts and other types of property have all been seized as part of drug investigations.
However, when law enforcement officials take property that has nothing to do with the alleged crime, they have violated the law. Law enforcement will often cast a wide net and assume that anything of value must have been purchased for some criminal intent or acquired through ill-gotten gains. If you have been forced to forfeit property by the authorities, be sure that you have strong representation from an experienced criminal defense attorney.
