Imagine this: one day, while driving on the highway, you are stopped for speeding or another traffic violation. A law enforcement officer, in addition to talking to you about your speeding ticket, begins to ask you questions about whether you have anything illegal in your car. You know that you don’t have anything illegal in your car. As a law-abiding citizen, you have nothing to hide, however, you are a bit confused as to why you are being asked these questions. “Mind if I take a quick look in your car?” asks the officer. Again, confused, scared, wanting to get on your way, and knowing that you do not have anything illegal in the car you say, “Sure, go ahead.”
The officer locates the cash that you had in your suitcase or in your backpack that you just obtained from selling your boat or car or another personal asset. Perhaps this is all the money that you were able to save over the course of the last five years that you were going to use for a lawful purpose.
The officer “seizes” the money and stuffs it into an evidence bag along with your cellphone. Is this legal? Doesn’t he need a warrant to just take my money? This may sound like some sort of nightmare, or something that only happens on television, however, it happened to you and happens to plenty of other innocent people on a fairly regular basis. In fact, in many cases, law enforcement does not even require a warrant to enter your car or home to seize your assets. So what to do? Speak with a knowledgeable California asset seizure defense attorney who will work hard to ensure that your property is returned to its rightful, lawful, owner, you.
