Asset Forfeiture is the ability of the government to seize money and assets. Any property that is found by a court of law to be contraband will be forfeited to the government. The Texas Code of Criminal Procedure has a very broad definition of what can be labeled contraband.
The application of asset forfeiture law has become a money maker for state and local authorities. Consequently, local prosecutors have become very aggressive in their application of the asset forfeiture process.
Many people have had money and other property seized by the police without any evidence of drugs or other illegal activity. The citizen then must fight to recover their rightful belongings. Government lawyers are intelligent and highly skilled advocates for the State. You need a skilled advocate to fight for you.
