The Devil’s Playground

Could it be that the devil’s playground is the house next door? In April 2008, a Jacksonville man was arrested on charges of child pornography and the government seized his $280,000.00 home as it was determined to have been used in the commission of the crime. The police and the state can seize a person’s property such as a home, vehicle, money, etc. if it can be determined that the property was used in the commission of the crime for which the defendant was arrested. It appears that the Jacksonville man had almost 20,000 photographs and videos of minors engaging in sexually explicit acts. Since the man viewed these pictures and videos in his home, and the crime was furthered in his home, the state had the right to seize the entire home. Now he is living in an even bigger house as he was sentenced to four years in Florida State Prison.
