$58,000 Returned - 5/3/2021

Orange County - Client was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for a traffic infraction. The car was searched, and law enforcement found a concealed firearm and a bag with $58,000 in cash. Law enforcement took the money and the gun pursuant to an “investigation.” Longwell Lawyers’ expert criminal trial attorney, Benjamin Jones, successfully convinced the law enforcement agency’s attorneys that there was nothing to legitimately investigate that could justify keeping the cash in evidence and, even if there was, law enforcement had not followed the proper procedures to keep the cash via civil forfeiture proceedings.

Case Dropped/Charges not Filed - 4/30/2021
