If you are accused of a crime here in Minnesota, you may face a number of serious consequences, including fines, probation and jail time. For certain offenses, however, you may face an additional penalty: the confiscation of your assets.
Through a process known as forfeiture, the government can confiscate any assets that it believes are connected to the commission of a crime. The government can also confiscate items that have been purchased using money gained through illegal activity. Authorities can exercise this right even if there is no criminal charge or conviction against you.
I am Howard Bass, a Burnsville-based forfeiture lawyer with more than 25 years of professional legal experience. When you work with my law office, I will move quickly to seek the restoration of your forfeited assets.
Experienced Forfeiture Assistance
Criminal forfeiture is often associated with drunk driving and drug offenses, though it can occur in other instances. A variety of items can be forfeited, including:
- Bank accounts
If you have had assets forfeited, contact me as soon as possible to discuss your situation. There are strict time limits for challenging asset forfeiture, and if you wait too long, your assets may be administratively forfeited and you will be unable to recover them. I will work for the return of your items and to protect your rights.
