Risks of Civil Forfeiture

Jacksonville Attorney Explaining the Risks of Civil Forfeiture

The purpose of the Florida Contraband Forfeiture Act is to deter crime by taking away the tools, profits, and contraband that are used and obtained in a crime. Supporters of this Act say it is necessary and effective to prevent and punish crime. However, civil forfeiture is not without controversy, and many innocent individuals can lose their property with little to no recourse for recovery.
In reading the Act, it is clear that there are inherent dangers in the process. For example, there is a lower standard of proof than that used for criminal trials. Additionally, these provisions can affect innocent parties. Another troubling aspect of this Act is that it can lead to law enforcement corruption.
