car seized case dismissed
I purchased a car from my step mother on a verbal contract. 7 days after she cashed the final payment, my father and her stole or "reposessed " my car. I called police and was told it was a civil matter. I located the car on my own and took it back. I recieved my title and registration in the mail, the 2 months later an officer contacted me. Long story short, I was given a citation for forgery I( a false claim), The police removed the vehicle before I was ever spoken to or given the citation, and released it to the "victim".I was not even home when this was done. The case was dismissed by the DA, all charges dropped. They wrote in the report that the vehicle was seized for evidence, and now wont help me get my car back. It is still titled and registered to me. Have my rights been violated and what can I do that costs no money for I am car-less and broke now???
