Current Bill Summary


SB 853 - Currently, a law enforcement agency must request that the prosecuting or circuit attorney file a motion in circuit court for the proper disposition of unclaimed seized property. If the prosecuting or circuit attorney does not file the motion in sixty days, the agency may request that the attorney general file such motion. Under this act, if neither the prosecuting or circuit attorney or the Attorney General files such motion, the law enforcement agency may file the motion, on its own behalf in circuit court, to properly dispose of the property.

This act provides a description of some circumstances when "seized property ceases to be useful" so that it can be disposed.

This act contains an emergency clause.
