RECEIVING STOLEN PROPERTY
Morris County Possession of Stolen Goods Defense Lawyers
If something is too good to be true, it probably is. Never is this adage truer than when it comes to receiving stolen property. If law enforcement agents have reason to believe that you received stolen property, they will arrest you. Prosecutors will then bring charges. Aside from the criminal penalties, these charges can be extremely damaging to your reputation. It is crucial to have an experienced lawyer standing up for you throughout the length of your case.
We are the law firm of Maynard Law Office, LLC. From our office in Morristown, we represent people across Northern New Jersey facing all types of theft crimes. We are tenacious advocates for your rights and will work diligently to achieve a positive outcome to your charges.
To prove that someone is guilty of receiving stolen property, the state must prove the following elements beyond a reasonable doubt.
- The defendant knowingly received movable property
- The property in question was stolen
- The defendant knew the property was stolen, or believed that the property was probably stolen at the time he or she received the property
In these cases, the final element is generally the most difficult for the state to prove. For example, if you purchased a flat-screen television for far less than fair market value, the state may use that fact as evidence to show you knew the property was stolen or probably stolen.
Our New Jersey receiving stolen property defense attorneys will use their experience and knowledge of the law to present a strong defense of the charges. We have helped numerous individuals facing theft-related charges obtain favorable results, even when the evidence initially appears to be strong.
