Forfeiture and Imprisonment

29/5/18 Forfeiture and Imprisonment

  • Forfeiture

The loss of property or a privilege due to breaking a law.

  • Imprisonment

The act of putting or confining a man in prison; the restraint of a man’s personal liberty; coercion exercised upon a person to prevent the free exercise of his powers of locomotion.
It is not a necessary part of the definition that the confinement should be in a place usually appropriated to that purpose; it may be in a locality used only for the specific occasion; or it may take place without the actual application of any physical agencies of restraint, (such as locks or bars,) but by verbal compulsion and the display of available force.
