A: Apparently you have not been charged with a crime at this time. So no, no Court yet. That money will be subject to some type of Forfeiture, and if you want it back, then a Claim filing and a Court Hearing will be necessary.

A: Do not put any other facts out there in the public domain. Do not talk to anyone about this, especially on a cellphone or a computer.

A: They should have given you a hearing date for the forfeiture hearing to get it back. Talk with an attorney immediately.
