This updated and expanded third edition of the best-selling book, Asset Forfeiture: Practice and Procedure in State and Federal Courts is a useful "How To" guide to common legal and practical issues faced by attorneys litigating cases involving asset forfeiture. Asset Forfeiture, or asset recovery, allows jurisdictions to freeze or seize properties which are either the proceeds of crime or the instrumentalities of crime. Instrumentalities of crime are properties that were used to facilitate crime; for example, cars used to transport illegal narcotics.
This program has become a key part of the government's efforts to combat major criminal activities. It has helped stem the mounting societal costs associated with financially motivated crime and to take the financial incentive out of criminal activity. These strategies included the freezing, seizing, and confiscation of assets - better known as asset forfeiture.
This book is written for both the criminal defense attorney and the criminal prosecutor. It covers the federal statutes and the laws of the 50 states and the District of Columbia to find common principles and then break those down into understandable, logical steps, and procedures. This book is the only single-volume work summarizing state and federal asset forfeiture procedures.
