Drug Crime Asset Loss Laws in Michigan
Asset forfeiture laws came into effect in order to punish organized criminals who profited off illegal activity such as drug distribution. Although illegal drug activity still results in considerable profit for many criminals, the law has been abused causing people accused of drug crimes, even small scale drug crimes, to lose everything they own. Asset forfeiture due to drug crime can result in losing your vehicles, home, business, and any other property that the government determines to have been obtained through drug crime or used to assist illegal activity.
Grabel & Associates will both protect your assets from forfeiture and fight to recover assets that were wrongly taken by the government. If you have lost cars, homes, money, or any other property due to a drug crime charge in Michigan, or fear you could lose assets in your drug crime case, work with our criminal defense team and fight for justice.
Michigan Drug Crime Asset Forfeiture Laws
According to the Michigan Asset Forfeiture Report, the primary aim of asset forfeiture is to punish drug criminals by taking away goods, property, and money obtained through illegal means. Property forfeiture cases in excess of $50,000 will be handled through a circuit court proceeding, though many cases are handled administratively. Let us prove you gained your assets through legitimate means and protect you from having to forfeit your possessions.
In 2011, over $25,000,000 was seized in MI drug crime cases, demonstrating how widely used asset forfeiture is. It is often difficult for drug crime defendants to prove the means by which possessions were gained, especially without the help of a skilled attorney. Our drug crime defense attorneys can help protect your assets by building an individualized defense strategy for your possession, distribution, cultivation, or manufacture case.
