Can Police Simply Take Your Car?

1 min read

Stephanie Wilson was never accused of a crime, but Detroit police seized her car anyway. For nearly two years, Ms. Wilson asked to see a judge. But her requests were ignored, and, instead, she was forced to attend repeated pretrial conferences with prosecutors. Missing one would automatically mean losing her car forever.

Ms. Wilson insisted she had done nothing wrong. Prosecutors took the car because they alleged her ex-boyfriend had used it to transport drugs, even though he was never charged with a crime and no drugs were found in the car. More important, the car belonged to Ms. Wilson, not her ex. Still, prosecutors refused even to let Ms. Wilson retrieve her child’s car seat from the car while she waited for a judge to hear her case.
