    "Among those concerned about the broadness of the proposal is Rep. Kay McIff, R-Richfield, a former judge. But McIff said he trusts prosecutors wouldn't abuse the law."

    Really! Sorry, but abuse of the law is so widespread that your comment on it seems idiotic.

    This law sounds more like criminal aggression to make sure people of interest to the police are stripped of all their finances. I hope the legislator see through this charade for what it is, oppressive government prosecution and persecution.

    This law will prevent individuals from aggressive repeal of accusation not yet a crime of conviction. The law of the courts has ruled that a defendant (the accused) are convicted of a crime and the accused has to disprove his conviction.

    A tactical law by police and prosecutors to keep citizens from proving their innocence. The law doesn't segregate after conviction or before conviction profiting by people of interest. Existing assets of accused are up for grabs and confiscation take over by law enforcement. Assets of accused must be protected from illegal theft.

    Notoriety? That is why police have the news media in tow, they create the notoriety to defund citizens rights. Without the news media persecution and lies, innocent until proven guilty wouldn't be forced in to the constant badgering by the law.
