Penalties for Possession of Stolen Property
A conviction for these types of charges can bring harsh consequences, making
the need for retaining an aggressive defense of high importance. Depending
on the value of stolen property in a person’s possession, consequences
can vary in severity.
If convicted, you may face the following penalties:
- For less than $650 worth of property, up to 6 months in jail and up to
$1,000 in fines
- For more than $650 but less than $3,500, up to 5 years in state prison
and $10,000 in fines
