Rep Lucido granted hearing on civil asset forfeiture reform

first_img Categories: Lucido News State Rep. Peter Lucido today announced the House Judiciary Committee will soon hold a hearing on his legislation requiring a criminal conviction before law enforcement officers can seize property using the civil asset forfeiture process.As a former probation officer and criminal defense lawyer of more than 30 years, Lucido said he witnessed law enforcement agencies abuse Michigan’s civil asset forfeiture law, which is intended to allow for the confiscation of property gained from the commission of a crime.“No one should profit from criminal activity, but we also need to make certain that nobody’s constitutional right to due process is trampled on,” said Lucido, of Shelby Township. “I have seen an overwhelming number of instances over the years where police take an individual’s property through civil asset forfeiture and never even bring criminal charges. It’s absolutely ridiculous, and it needs to end.”Under the current law, Lucido said law enforcement officers are allowed to use their own subjective standard to take personal property from people simply because they suspect a crime has been committed.“In our criminal justice system, individuals are presumed innocent unless and until they are convicted,” he said. “Unfortunately, that isn’t the case with our state’s civil asset forfeiture process. With no hearings before the taking of property, the police have become the judge and jury.”While an individual whose property is seized can later contest the taking of their property, Lucido said it’s often economically infeasible.“When the police take $2,500 worth of an innocent, uncharged person’s property, but it’s going to cost them $3,000 to hire a lawyer to fight it, the result is an economic reality of cost-benefit,” Lucido said.Lucido’s legislation, House Bill 4158, would require a conviction to be in place before the civil asset forfeiture process is initiated. The House Judiciary Committee is expected to take testimony on the bill during a meeting immediately following House session on Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018.“I’m looking forward to the hearing,” Lucido said. “There are no reasonable arguments law enforcement can make to warrant taking property from citizens before affording them their fundamental due process rights.”### 23Jan Rep.

But this report once again underlines the devasta

first_img“But this report once again underlines the devastating consequences we would face without the current mitigations package. “It should serve as a reminder to all parties that we need to work together now to ensure that a second round of mitigations are in place when the current one expires in March 2020.“While we must continue to oppose British Government cuts to welfare, we must also seek continuation of mitigation measures,” added the Foyle MLA.‘UN poverty report a damning indictment of British policy’ – Mullan was last modified: May 28th, 2019 by John2John2 Tags: ‘UN poverty report a damning indictment of British policy’ – MullanFOYLE MLAKAREN MULLANSinn FeinUN special rapporteur on extreme poverty A UNITED Nations report into the impact of austerity and welfare cuts is a damning indictment of British Government policy, Sinn Féin’s Karen Mullan has said.The Foylel MLA was commenting after the report by the UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty warned that ‘ideological’ cuts to public services since 2010 have led to ‘tragic consequences’ in Britain with an increased reliance on food banks, homelessness and child poverty.“This report is an absolutely damning indictment on the impact of the Tory government’s austerity and welfare cuts agenda,” Karen Mullan said. ShareTweet “It lays out in stark and devastating detail how the social safety net has been ‘deliberately removed and replaced with a harsh and uncaring ethos’.“The consequences of this have been devastating for countless families and communities. And if the British Government cares one iota about the impact of its policies on vulnerable citizens, then it would abandon this approach.“Thankfully, here in the north, we have been shielded from the worst impacts of the welfare cuts agenda by the top-up package secured as part of the Fresh Start Agreement.“However, that does not mean that people here are not suffering as a result of relentless Tory cuts – they very much are.last_img read more
