The crime of Dealing in Stolen Property, sometimes referred to as Fencing, involves the buying and selling of property that you know, or should know, was stolen. Commonly fenced items include jewelry, electronics, and car parts.
Many individuals often mistakenly believe that if they didn’t steal the property themselves, they can’t get into trouble for selling it. This is not the case, and the penalties associated with selling stolen property are often as harsh as the penalties associated with stealing the property. If you have been charged with dealing in stolen property in Florida, having an experienced defense attorney represent you can severely affect the outcome of your case.
