Man Receives Property Back after Forfeiture

Oct 10, 2019, by Maurice Davis in Case Results, Criminal Defense

A man owned some property, and without his knowledge, his tenants were using the property to run an after-hours bar where they sold alcohol. Though the man had no knowledge of these activities, the Detroit Police raided the property during the after-hours and went to seize/forfeit his property due to illegal activity. Wanting to avoid this, the man reached out to Davis Law Group PLLC for help with his criminal case.

Attorney Maurice Davis immediately began working on the client’s behalf. He filed a response in Circuit Court and argued that the client had no knowledge of the what was going on on his property – he was simply an innocent landowner. As a result, the man got his property back and did not have to pay anything.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
