Representative Harmon Pre- Files Bill to Allow Forfeiture of Vehicle Used in DUI if Def. Has Prior Offense – With penalties and imprisonment greatly expanded

This seems like a harsh penalty.

BR 17 – Representative Mike Harmon (06/08/12)
AN ACT relating to driving under the influence.
Amend various sections in KRS Chapter 189A, relating to driving under the influence, to restructure the existing penalties from a four-tiered structure to a three-tiered structure; expand the look-back window for prior offenses from five years to ten years, and to allow forfeiture of motor vehicles used in a DUI if the operator’s license had been previously suspended; amend KRS 281A.2102 to conform.
(Prefiled by the sponsor(s).)
To: Interim Joint Committee on Judiciary
“, any motor vehicle owned by the violator and used in the commission of an offense under this section shall be subject to forfeiture under the same terms, conditions, and defenses and using the same process as set out in KRS 218A.405 to 218A.460 for property subject to forfeiture under that chapter.
