The law permits the state to seize any assets upon showing that an accused used crime related proceeds to procure assets like real estate, vehicles and financial instruments. Criminal dismissal of the charge against you does not automatically quash asset forfeiture since a civil court may have a jurisdiction to order the asset return by a separate legal procedure.  One of the bases for assets return exists under the protection of the Fourth Amendment if your property illegally seized in violation of that Amendment rights.  Another foundation for such return lies in credible proof of legitimate sources of such assets that offers an affirmative defense to the presumption of criminal assets involvement.
