Property Seizure Case
Muscogee Tribal Court Attorney Ted Hasse was interviewed by KTUL Channel 8, discussing a property seizure case. Hasse is representing Lilly Powell, whose Jeep Compass was confiscated by the Muscogee Nation Lighthorse police eight months ago following her arrest for drug-related charges.
During the interview, Hasse expressed his astonishment over the situation, emphasizing that Lilly was not using her vehicle for illegal activities at the time of her arrest. He raised concerns about the seizure of property under such circumstances, stating that this practice is not common in Oklahoma counties. Hasse speculated that the revenue generated from property seizures might be a motivating factor for the Lighthorse police.
Response from the Muscogee Nation
In response to the situation, the Muscogee Nation clarified that they are focused on combatting drug-related issues and that the confiscation of vehicles is a measure taken to deter drug offenses. However, Hasse expressed disappointment with this response and hoped for a reconsideration of the policy.
Additionally, Hasse noted that Lilly’s case is not an isolated incident, and he believes it is just the beginning of a larger issue. He emphasized that there may be many others who have been affected by similar property seizures, potentially leading to an unjust system.
Working Towards Rebuilding
Despite losing her vehicle, Lilly Powell has since become clean and sober and is working on rebuilding her life. Hasse is committed to advocating for her rights and ensuring that her case is brought to justice. He believes that everyone deserves a fair chance at redemption and should not be unfairly punished for past mistakes.
