    I am one of the people that has invested money with Jeffery Mowen. I have asked for my money back. For two years I have waited for him to return my money... I am still waiting... and waiting. In the mean time he has financially devastated our family. It has taken wwwaaayyy too long to bring this case to trial!

    BE AFRAID, do you recall the $10,000 taken in Utah by the UHP? There was no crime in progress. The government didn't like the owner's answers and this excuse was used by Utah to steal this money. Some bills tested positive for drugs. No drugs were found.

    I believe this is why I've encounter police embarrassment driving in Utah with California plates, The UHP is fishing hoping to find an excuse to rip me off for my truck.

    BTW. Bush changed the law so banks must report any withdrawal over $5,000.

    Yes, the drug war as been the perfect storm to excuse giving up liberty for a promise, as hollow as a chocolate Easter Bunny, of security.

    This is where we are headed as a nation. The Government can just come in and STEAL your property and then sell it?
    It doesn't matter if there is a mountain of evidence that he is guilty. Until a court has actually called judged him guilty they should not be able to take his property..

    I though that you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law what if he is innocent what about that.

    How can you sell someones belongings BEFORE they are convicted of a Crime? The guy is 'innocent until proven guilty', isn't he? It appears even the Judges don't believe in the Constitution and money trumps all. The guy has not been convicted. What happened to his rights?

    Has Utah been turned into an arm of Soviet Russia?

  • Wow.

    Sounds like this guy was a nut. However, where does innocent until proven guilty fit in with this situation? If he couldn't afford the rent for storage, that seems like his problem, not the governments. I worry about the precedent a case like this presents.
