Section 20-2-93, Ala. Code 1975, Civil Forfeiture


Wilson v. State of Alabama, [Ms. 2180453, Oct. 25, 2019] __ So. 3d __ (Ala. Civ. App. 2019). The court (Edwards, J.; and Moore and Hansen, JJ., concur; Thompson, P.J., and Donaldson, J., concur in the result) affirms a judgment of the Shelby Circuit Court requiring forfeiture of $19,410 cash found by the trial court to be commingled with lawful deposits in a bank account because some or all of the funds on deposit were generated from the unlawful importation and distribution of Marijuana and other drugs. Despite finding no clear precedent from Alabama or elsewhere supporting under § 20-2-93, Ala. Code 1975, forfeiture of all the funds on deposit when those funds could not all be traced to unlawful transactions, the court affirms pursuant to Ala. R. App. P. 28(a)(10) upon determining the appellant failed to provide legal authority or arguments warranting reversal.
