Friend obtained a 5th wheel through purchase 5,000$ some time after transaction became aware it was stolen is there a certain time limit where it would no longer be considered stolen property or be considered a criminal act to have possession of such?
It wasnt receiving stolen property when you bought it, but it became a crime sometime thereafter whenever you became aware. There may be a statute of limitations several years down the road. If you know the rightful owner, why not see if you can get some of your money back and return it.
write out a detailed summary of all the facts and make an appointment with a local attorney who can assist you in getting any money taken illegally from you........and if appropriate coordinate prosecution of the guilty party.

An appeal on these issues may not be likely but you certainly should consult...Read more »

Property receipt, I’ve been told that I can go retrieve the items they took from my room. Is this true , as they took $ 2300.00 from me that I had been saving. No charges have filed on any of the individuals there nor the home owner.
