Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If they cannot prove your car was used in the offense, the court must release your car to you. You need to get your attorney to file a motion in court for release of the vehicle, since they cannot prove that the vehicle was used in the crime and as such they have no authority to continue to hold the car.
