Federal forfeiture law

by Jerald Diaz | 01 September 2015
Category: Law Academic
Synopsis
Forfeiture has long been an effective law enforcement tool. Congress and state legislatures have authorised its use for over 200 years. Every year, it redirects property worth billions of dollars from criminal to lawful uses. Forfeiture law has always been somewhat unique. By the close of the 20th century, however, legislative bodies, commentators, and the courts had begun to examine its eccentricities in greater detail because under some circumstances it could be not only harsh but unfair. The Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act was a product of that reexamination. This book is an overview of federal forfeiture law. It sketches the origins and general attributes of forfeiture, describes the distribution of the hundreds of millions of dollars it generates, and identifies some of the constitutional issues it raises. Furthermore, the book provides an overview of selected legal issues and reforms surrounding asset forfeiture, including the burden-of-proof standard and innocent-owner defense in civil asset forfeiture cases, access to counsel in both civil and criminal forfeiture cases, allocation of profits from confiscated assets, and DOJ's equitable sharing program.
