Atlantic City Possession of Stolen Property Lawyer

The possession of stolen property, whether it is a felony or a misdemeanor charge, is most often prosecuted in New Jersey state courts. In some cases, however, it may considered a federal crime if a person is caught transporting or selling stolen property across state lines.

At my firm, I will review the search and seizure laws that may apply, challenge any illegal actions and move to exclude evidence that was obtained in violation of civil rights. Police officers must have proper grounds upon which to search property and seize goods that they believe to be stolen.
