Criminal Practice – Civil Forfeiture – 90-Day Limit – Not Jurisdictional (access required)

U.S. v. Wilson and $13,963 More or Less in U.S. Currency In this civil forfeiture proceeding, the government’s failure to file its forfeiture petition within the 90-day time limit of 18 U.S.C. § 983(a)(3) was not jurisdictional, and the 4th Circuit says because a drug defendant did not invoke this statute of limitations during the forfeiture proceeding, he forfeited this defense.
