You raise a very interesting question. I can find no where in Indiana law that allows a Judge to strip title to a vehicle. I also find no case law where that has occurred in the criminal proceeding.
The county may seek forfeiture, but the Judge appears to have no authority to remove title. I would suggest that the remedy is to file a Motion to seek a modification of sentence to allow: (1) the car to be sold; or (2) the car title to be transferred to another relative.
