Asset Forfeiture in Idaho
Criminal or civil asset forfeiture is when the government seizes property or funds belonging to an individual, due to the government’s belief that said individual’s assets are connected to illegal activity. The law allows the government to seize these assets for reasons of examining evidence, stopping illegal activities, and more. However, many times, assets are wrongfully seized from individuals when the government had no right to take the property. When this happens, the individual whose assets were seized can hire an attorney who will fight the government and help recover the assets.
The federal government can take property for a variety of reasons, including:
- If a business faces civil allegations for violating the Patriot Act
- If the individual committed money laundering to avoid paying taxes
- If the asset was utilized in order to commit a crime
- If the asset was purchased with proceeds from an illegal activity
