HB 1287 Forfeiture of property used in connection with commission of crimes; conviction required.
SUMMARY AS PASSED HOUSE: (all summaries)
Forfeiture of property used in connection with the commission of crimes; conviction required. Requires that any action for the forfeiture of property used in connection with the commission of a crime be stayed until the person whose property is the subject of the forfeiture action has been convicted of the crime authorizing the forfeiture and has exhausted all appeals. The bill provides that property may be forfeited even though no final conviction order is entered if (i) the forfeiture is ordered by the court pursuant to a plea agreement or (ii) the owner of the property has not submitted a written demand for the return of the property within one year from the date the property was seized. This bill incorporates HB 1468.
