Georgia district attorneys through the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council continue to recommend changes to civil forfeiture reform legislation that should be passed out of a House Judiciary subcommittee when it meets Wednesday afternoon at the State Capitol in Atlanta.  Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter offered several possible amendments when he testified Monday.  Others who spoke during the hearing include Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police executive director Frank Vincent Rotondo and Georgia Sheriffs’ Association executive director Terry Norris.  Rotondo supports HB 1 and Norris opposes the legislation.  Here is a link to the Foundation’s coverage on our YouTube channel:
