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
  • For more than $3,500 worth of property, up to 10 years in state prison and up to $10,000 in fines

For higher values, this can be classified as a felony offense. If you are not a U.S. citizen, a conviction can also result in deportation.
