Property Crime Lawyer in Carteret County, NC

Possession of Stolen Goods – Defending the Accused

Many people realize that theft crimes are prosecuted relentlessly. What most people do not realize is that it is also considered to be a criminal offense to be in possession of a stolen item. According to §14-72 of the North Carolina general statute, it is considered a Class H felony to receive or possess stolen goods that are valued above $1000.

At Cummings & Kennedy, we recognize that you may not have known an item was stolen. Cases involving the possession of stolen goods can be complex – for example, your lawyer will have to determine whether you were subjected to an illegal search and seizure. If you were, the evidence that was acquired could be thrown out. The only way to know, however, is by working with an experienced advocate who knows what and where to look.
