Most people think the laws regarding stolen property are straightforward. If you steal something, you get charged for theft. However, it is not that simple. What if you unknowingly purchased something that was stolen? Laws regarding these issues are rather complex.
Therefore, it is vital to learn as much as you can about these laws. With lack of understanding, you could end up facing criminal charges for a crime you never knew you committed.
For example, it is important to know the penalties for receiving stolen property in California. It is also important to understand the penalties for possession of stolen property. Being charged with theft may affect future career opportunities as well.
It’s obvious that selling stolen property is a crime. But, laws regarding receiving stolen property unknowingly are a little more complex. If it can be proven that the individual receiving the property had no way of knowing it was stolen, the individual will not be convicted. But, if the court determines that a reasonable person would have known the property was stolen, charges will be filed.
The penalties for this crime can range from probation to state prison.
If you are charged with any of these crimes, it is vital to know your rights. Do not speak to law enforcement until you have consulted with a lawyer.
