    Where will the money go? Does the state police get to keep it?

    If I found that money I would have immediately turned in all 1.5 million of it over to the police. You never know who is looking for it.

    It is a truly BAD IDEA to give the STATE the right to take away your assets until you can PROVE that they were NOT made illegally.

    the very idea flies in the face of "innocent until proven guilty".

    It is, I think, a violation of the 5th Amendment

    ...nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.[1]

    they should have to have some proof you made it illegally, your family could having given it to you or you could have saved it, won a bet or 50.

    Under the law, as it stands now, the police don't have to return your property if you're not convicted.

    The first thing they should do is hold a press conference and ask if anyone has misplaced their $3 million.

    Uh, the can't just seize anything unless and until you either cop a plea or are found guilty. In cases where money like this is involved a lot of times the DA will tell the suspect that if they don't fight the seizure they will accept it in lieu of further penalty, and of course a judge has to sign off on that.

    They don't just steal your shit and maybe you can have it back if you prove your innocent.
