Orlando Possession of Stolen Property Lawyers

Accused of Dealing in or Receiving Stolen Property? Call LaBar Adams Today.

There is an old saying: "If something looks too good to be true, it probably is." If you have been charged with dealing in stolen property, you may be thinking this right now. Employees of pawn shops and second-hand metal dealers are often charged with these very serious crimes. If you or a loved one has been alleged to have dealt in stolen property, you need a criminal defense lawyer to present a strong defense and determine any viable alternatives.

Dealing in Stolen Property Can Be More Serious Than the Original Theft

Dealing in stolen property can be charged as a second-degree felony or a first-degree felony, depending on the specific circumstances. This is a more serious charge than almost any kind of theft charge. In Florida, second-degree felonies carry mandatory prison sentences. The government does not even have to prove that you knew the property was stolen. It only needs to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you should have known the property was stolen.

Orlando Possession of Stolen Property Attorney N. Ryan LaBar understands the legal issues in play in these cases. He will explore all of the evidence to find the weaknesses in the state's case. For instance, the state may have difficulties proving that you should have known a piece of property was stolen. If this is the case, he will work to have the criminal charges dismissed or minimized.
