$500,000 fine for dealing drugs

Not actually me, but I’ll pretend. 5 to 10 years in prison for dealing drugs. $500k fine. I can do the time, but what about the fine when I get out? I have property worth maybe $400k. Can the court confiscate my property to pay the fine and then bill me for the rest?

I suggest you pretend to consult with a lawyer.

Depends on state law.

Can’t your friend just sell some more drugs to make the $500k?

By the way, the IRS requires “your friend” to report income from selling illegal drugs on his tax return.
