Sign the petition to support criminal justice reform.
South Carolina’s criminal justice system is broken. One important policy change that is needed is civil asset forfeiture reform.
Did you know that right now, the government an seize the property of South Carolinians, even if no charges are filed. And if a person wants their property back, they must first go through a lengthy legal process.
Often, that process can cost more than the property is worth.
Civil asset forfeiture also allows the government to keep or sell that property, too. This is wrong. The burden should be on the government, not private individuals, to prove that property is being possessed illegally.
It’s time to restore justice for South Carolinians! Sign the petition if you believe civil asset forfeiture needs serious reform.
