Criminal Asset Forfeiture Is Generally Prohibited
Even when crimes have been committed and guilt has been established, Asset Forfeiture is generally illegal, in Oklahoma.
Our first legal code was established in 1910. And unless a specific crime has a stated statutory penalty of the loss of property used in that crime or gained through the illegal activity; there is to be a protection of property rights for the convicted individual. Treason is the one exception stated in this matter.
§21-68. Conviction does not work forfeiture.
No conviction of any person for crime works any forfeiture of any property, except in the cases of any outlawry for treason, and other cases in which a forfeiture is expressly imposed by law.
