Novel Asset Forfeiture Attempt In Racketeering Case

In a criminal prosecution, the federal government can seize assets deemed to be proceeds of federal crimes. They can also seize assets that were used to facilitate federal crimes. The government suggests that this power is used to improve public safety and security and to prevent future criminal activity by criminal organizations. In practice, asset forfeiture can be seen as way to punish family members and people associated with individuals who are convicted of crimes. The power to force the forfeiture of assets is one that should watched carefully by those concerned with criminal justice.
