Important new law review article regarding criminal forfeiture & the right to have juries decide forfeitability

Brynn Applebaum, Criminal Asset Forfeiture and the Sixth Amendment After Southern Union and Alleyne: State-Level Ramifications, 68 Vand. L. Rev. 549 (2015).

An important article from Brynn Appelbaum, a J.D. Candidate at the Vanderbilt University Law School. The article convincingly argues that the Sixth Amendment should be construed as guaranteeing the right to have a jury decide the forfeitability of assets in criminal asset forfeiture cases, and provides persuasive historical evidence for thinking that eighteenth century jurisprudence is consonant with that view, among other things. Well worth a read.
