Criminal Practice – Forfeiture — $400,000 in Currency – Drug-Trafficking – Time Deadline (access required)

U.S. v. Martin Four defendants convicted as part of a drug-trafficking operation lose their appellate challenge to the belated forfeiture of their property under 18 U.S.C. § 983, including over $400,000 in currency from several accounts, a Mercedes automobile and several million dollars in drug proceeds, as the 4th Circuit holds the time deadline for forfeiture under Rule 32.2 is not a jurisdictional condition. Defendants argue the district court was without jurisdiction to order the criminal forfeiture of their property after sentencing and the entry of judgments.
