This is the new, expanded Second edition of Brenda Grantland's first book - Your House Is Under Arrest - published in 1993.
Back in 1993, federal forfeiture procedure had fewer Due Process protections and more obstacles for forfeiture victims ("claimants") trying to defend their property. After eight years of lobbying, our forfeiture reform bill, CAFRA was enacted in 2000. Some of the abuses came to an end, but new abuses cropped up. Now 16 years after CAFRA reformed the law, things are as just as bad - or even worse than before. Because there are now 200 more federal forfeiture triggering offenses, forfeiture is more widespread. Forfeiture revenue is up dramatically - from $500 million in federal forfeiture revenue in fiscal year 2001 to $5 billion in fiscal year 2014.
Today, average law abiding investors have even more to fear from asset forfeiture. This book is written to educate investors and give helpful tips for avoiding forfeiture.
