Civil asset forfetiture is a process through which police can seize your things if they suspect them of being related to a crime. They can then file an action in court to forfeit (keep) your things. They can do this even if you have never been convicted, charged, or even arrested with a crime. Worse, the police get to keep the proceits from this process. This bill changes would have required a conviction before any property could be forfeited, and prohibited the proceeds of forfeiture to go to local law enforcement or the prosecutor.
