District attorney civil asset forfeiture revenues and expenditures

Donate
Oklahoma’s district attorney districts. Courtesy, Oklahoma District Attorneys Council.

Below are two data sets from the Oklahoma District Attorneys Council showing revenue from cash forfeitures, funds from the sale of forfeited property and some other revenues (which can include funds like gifts or court-ordered assessments). The data covers fiscal year 2017, which ran from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. In cases where expenditures were higher than revenues during the fiscal year, the difference was covered by funds already in the forfeiture account from previous years.
