When can I have my property back?
Property which has been stolen can often be returned to the owner prior to the trial. Sometimes this cannot be done --particularly if the property is currency or when it directly identifies the accused (e.g., by fingerprints).
To determine if the property can be returned to you prior to the trial, contact the police agency that investigated the case. They will furnish our office with documentation of ownership and the necessary affidavits to obtain a court order to restore the property to you. If your property must be held until trial, and/or received into court as evidence, it can usually be restored when the trial is over.
