You May Face Asset Seizure Along with Drug Trafficking
When you face charges for drug trafficking in Pekin IL, you may also face asset seizure from law enforcement. The police will attempt to seize property alleged to have been bought with “drug money”, proceeds of a crime, or used in a commission of a crime. However, law enforcement often seizes property like this illegally.
Also, police and prosecutors will often attempt to forfeit vehicles, cash, and other valuable property of yours. They often do this whether or not they have actual proof that the property was used in a crime, or related to the commission of a crime. This is called asset forfeiture. If you face problems from law enforcement asset seizures or forfeitures, call Borsberry Law at 309-637-9000.
