Somebody that hasn't worked in ten years,having those kinds of assets makes me wonder where he got them especially the 25,000 for the stang,And that BS about remodeling a house etc.I bet he's on SSD yet he can remodel houses and cars,He's ripping the gubment off one way or another,If he did buy a house and sell it for more money then there are taxes to be paid,bet he didn't pay any taxes on the money he supposedly made

Having worked a drug Task Force for more than 15 years. I can tell you this guy is getting a good deal. The courts are not handing out prision sentences for Marijuana dealers & as you can see by his car and the cash on hand Crime does pay..taking the money is the only way to punish them anymore..
We recently went through a big law change in Utah because a state senators kid got caught selling dope and had his toys taken away..Now all state forfeitures go into a central fund and is given out as grants and a % goes to drug court. The local agencies cannot keep anything seized.
Just because the prosecutor (cops don't make plea deals) showed him his options and he chose to pay his way out of jail doesn't make him a victim of "the System" You play you pay..he chose his toys over his freedom.

"So, you think it is OK to allow the criminal to profit from his crimes?"
Of course not! That's what politicians are for.

So a twice convicted drug dealer is whining that his "work product" was seized pursuant to his latest conviction? Of course he is... They always do.
"I can tell you this guy is getting a good deal."
God, country, family.
Can the cops seize a house that has a mortgage on it or a car that is not paid for???
We had a sheriff here who would stop cars on I 95 and if the driver had a large amount of cash the sheriff would confiscate the money but did not arrest the driver. The driver would have to go to court to get his money back. I believe the sheriff's name was Vogal. Sixto what do you think about this kind of action. Something smells bad here.

Many people believe that that much money had to be drug money or some other criminal activity. The scary thing is though that the government did not have to prove the money was obtained illegally, it was on him to prove that it wasn't. If they can do it to him couldn't they do it to me next time i'm carrying $3000 to a gun show?
If you are not actually convicted of a crime the government should not be able to incarcerate you or take your property. Its that simple.
To me it sounds like the law is saying the guy is presumed guilty instead of the other way around. By now all our money should have the smell of drugs on it. This happened several times here. What happened to the mans rights. It's about like being held up by the sheriff and there is no body to complain to.
These guys don't get it.
We have entered into the Jack boot thugs era of modern times as everyone has been lulled into a sense of complacency, and no one realizes it happened.
You people who support this activity surprise me
people have lost their property because someone they don't even know planted marijuana plants on it, and the LEO confiscate it
"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them, it is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ‘needed’ before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ interests, I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can." Barry Goldwater
