Possession of Stolen Property means to receive, retain, possess, conceal, or dispose of property, knowing that that property has been stolen. The degrees of Possession of Stolen Property are defined by the dollar value of the property involved. The property involved cannot be a firearm or vehicle, as other charges apply to those types of property.
Possessing Stolen Property in the First Degree: property valued at more than $5000.00. Possession of Stolen Property in the First Degree is a Class B felony. A person with no felony history would typically face a sentence of 0-90 days, but sentence enhancements or multiple counts could increase this range dramatically.
Possessing Stolen Property in the Second Degree: property valued at $750.00 to $$5000.00. Possession of Stolen Property in the Second Degree is a Class C felony, and a person with no criminal history would typically face a standard range sentence of 0-60 days. Again, this could increase dramatically if multiple counts or a sentence enhancement apply.
