CIVIL AND CRIMINAL FORFEITURE
Civil and Criminal Asset Forfeiture happens when the government takes property, such as your cash, your car, your house, etc. They take this property alleging it has been used to assist the commission of a crime. It is up to the citizen to ask the court to have the government return the property. Civil Asset Forfeiture occurs when an individual has not been charged with a crime; the government just wants the property. Criminal Asset Forfeiture usually occurs in conjunction with criminal charges.
