Defending Against Drug Charges And Asset Seizure
Statutes allow for law enforcement to seize assets under certain circumstances. The most common situation that triggers asset forfeiture is in connection with a drug crime arrest. Forfeited assets in a drug bust often include:
- Any cash found in close proximity to drugs that police claim to have discovered.
- Any purchased items that police believe were obtained with drug dealing proceeds.
- Anything that law enforcement believe was used as a “container” for illegal substances, such as a suitcase, a car, a boat or an airplane, to name a few examples.
Perhaps another person’s drugs were found in your car. Even if you had no knowledge that the drugs were there, you need a lawyer on your side to help protect your rights — and get your car back. We aim to help clients recover their seized assets as soon as possible.
