In the world today, many people are selling items in unconventional ways. This is a popular practice of returning some value from an item that is no longer of use. Sometimes items sold online or in garage sales have not been legally obtained by the seller. If the object was stolen and is under police investigation and you are found in possession of it, you might be charged with receiving or passion of stolen property.
This crime can sometimes have some gray area in severity and sentencing. While you will likely not be able to recoup the cost of purchasing the item, preserving your innocence and freedom is of the utmost importance.
Penalties on these types of crimes can include fines and incarceration. Even in the long term there could still be ramifications in the types of privileges and licenses you can qualify for. This is even more likely to be an issue if the item was of significant value.
