What is Receiving Stolen Property?
According to New Jersey criminal law, if you possess property that you know or believe to have been stolen you can be accused of Receiving Stolen Property.
To be accused of receiving property, one of the following must apply:
- You received stolen property in a different transaction sometime in the past year.
- You were in possession of at least two pieces of stolen property that were stolen on two different occasions.
- You regularly do business buying or selling the property and you didn’t ask how the person you purchased the property from obtained it.
- You have two or more pieces of property that have defaced identification numbers.
If they can’t proven these facts against you beyond a reasonable doubt, then you should be found not guilty.
(See New Jersey criminal law sec. 20-7)
How can you help me with my Receiving Stolen Property charge?
I am a Receiving Stolen Property Defense Attorney in New Jersey and I have personally helped many people with cases where they are accused of receiving stolen property.
These cases are often very hard for the state to prove because they must show that you had knowledge the property was stolen. Unless you admitted to knowing the property was stolen during an interview, then you probably have a good case that you might be able to take to trial.
There is also a defense if you were in possession of the stolen property because you intended to return the property to the original owner. No matter what your specific situation involved, I will personally find the best way to help you and give you the confidence you need to proceed with your criminal charges.
What Could Happen to Me If I am Convicted of Receiving Stolen Property?

The best way to find out what your sentence would be if you were convicted is to call me and set up a free consultation. We can go over your case and determine how the law applies specifically to your situation.
