Civil asset forfeiture lets law enforcement seize and sell property they assert has been involved in criminal activity. This means your money, your car, home or other valuable items can be taken from you without you having been charged with – much less convicted of – a crime. It’s one thing to prevent someone from profiting from criminal acts once they’ve been afforded due process and convicted of a crime. Taking the property of innocent people is something else. Sheldon Gilbert from the Institute of Justice joins us to discuss civil asset forfeiture and what is being done in regards to much-needed reform of these laws.
