Nuts and Bolts of Asset Forfeiture

The enactment of HB 233, the Uniform Civil Forfeiture Procedure Act, on April 2, 2015, ushered in significant changes in asset forfeiture processes. These changes apply not only to drug forfeiture but also to various other types, such as RICO and gambling-related forfeitures. The bill mandates alterations in asset seizure, forfeiture, distribution, utilization, and reporting, effective July 1, 2015, for all seizures occurring thereafter. This class is designed to educate participants on the new procedures outlined in the legislation.

Topics specifically covered during this training include:

  • The Purposes of Asset Forfeiture
  • What Can and Can't Be Seized
  • The Procedures Required to Pursue Asset Forfeiture
  • The Distribution of Forfeited Assets
  • The Lawful Purposes to which Forfeited Assets May Be Used
  • The Reporting Requirements for Law Enforcement and District Attorneys

For District Attorney personnel, reimbursements come out of the approved travel budget for the Judicial Circuit. Employees of other agencies are not eligible for reimbursement by PAC. You are responsible for your own lodging.
