People v. Ten Thousand One Hundred Fifty Three Dollars and Thirty Eight Cents In US Currency, B205875

In forfeiture proceedings related to $10,153.38 seized by police at the time of defendant's arrest for drug related crimes, trial court's order of forfeiture is reversed and remanded as, construing the forfeiture statute strictly, the People's failure to try the forfeiture proceeding in conjunction with the underlying criminal case precluded entry of an order of forfeiture.
