At one time I was under investigation for commiting a criminal act under Texas Penal Code 33.02 (Unauthorized access of a computer system). On/around February 15th, the police executed a warrant to search my place of residence and seize any device which allows the "storage of data". They have now been in posession of my property for almost four months. I am "aggreived by the deprivation of property" and would like to file a motion for the return of my property as allowed by Rule 41(g) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure (18 App. U.S.C). What rules do the law enforcement officials have to follow as far as the timely filings of charges? There has been no investigation of any kind for about three months, and I have yet to hear anything back about the return of my property.Further, while originally discussing the return of my property, the investigative entity (Abilene Christian University Police Department) required that I allow them to destroy all of my personal data contained on said devices before returning them to me. Is it allowed for them to destroy my property before returning it to me? I do not believe I have violated any kind of forfeiture rules, should I not get my property back in its original form?
