Drug task forces that work the Louisville International Airport (Muhammad Ali) and the Cincinnati airport (located in Northern Kentucky) frequently stop passengers and seize money and drugs from them. These individuals then must fight to keep their currency from being forfeited administratively to the DEA or other federal agencies. People intercepted with narcotics will frequently face charges in state or federal court.
These cases, whether civil forfeitures or federal criminal in nature, require experienced federal criminal defense attorneys to litigate. Scott Cox has defended every type of case originating at our local airports, whether they involve carrying a concealed deadly weapon or illegal possession of narcotics. Mike Mazzoli, who previously headed the Forfeiture Division at the United States Attorney's Office, is an expert representing individuals whose property is seized illegally.
