Asset forfeiture a potential consequence for federal drug crime

When most of us think about criminal consequences, we probably imagine probation or time spent behind bars. However, one of the key consequences of a guilty verdict for a drug crime has little to do with being locked up. The fact is that the government can enforce criminal asset forfeiture against defendants in large-scale cases. Federal asset forfeiture is seen as particularly serious, as such high-level legal proceedings are generally reserved for the most serious violations.

What kind of tax crime constitutes tax evasion?

Have you ever been concerned about potential mistakes in your taxes? Many Florida residents made inadvertent errors when they are processing their own taxes -- but does this constitute a tax crime? Luckily, experts say that honest mistakes are very rarely prosecuted. In most cases, those individuals must simply pay the difference in the amount of taxes they missed. However, when payers intentionally attempt to defraud the government by underpaying their taxes, additional criminal penalties may come into play.
