Property That May Be Forfeited in a Florida Civil Forfeiture Action
The Florida Contraband Forfeiture Act lists specific types of property that are subject to seizure under the overall category of "contraband." This includes any items that are illegal to possess, such as controlled substances and paraphernalia. Additionally, any property that was illegally obtained through the crime, such as currency or property purchased with the proceeds of crime, falls under this category. Finally, any property that was used or attempted to be used to assist in the commission of a crime is subject to seizure.
