Can I sell my asset to pay lawyers if…?

Just curious…. If a person is charged with financial fraud, can he use the money or asset that he ****might*** have bought using the money gained from that activity to pay the lawyer fee?

For eg, I start a scheme to make money from people and in the meantime I also work or also own other business. Over the years I buy houses, cars, yatch… and now I am sued and asked to return the money. Can I sell my houses and cars to cover the legal fee?
The reason I ask this question is because I feel it’s not fair for the victims if they are cheated and now their money is used by the other guy to pay his lawyers… it means even if they win the case, they may not be able to get the money back.
