Nature and Basic Problems of Non-Conviction-Based Confiscation in the United States

My article describing the nature of non-conviction-based confiscation proceedings in the United States is now available in Spanish.  The article discusses the goals that asset forfeiture is intended to serve in the federal criminal justice system, the types of property that are subject to forfeiture, and the procedures that are used to initiate, litigate, and conclude asset forfeiture cases.  With respect to procedure, its focus is on non-conviction-based (NCB) forfeiture, and especially on the safeguards that protect the property interests and due process rights of property owners.
