The State will need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you had knowledge that the AC's were stolen property. It seems to me, without that evidence, the charges should be dismissed.
It may be that you will want to consider an Alford Plea, where you do not admit guilt but agree the Prosecutor could have enough evidence to convict. That evidence is the mere fact that you were in possession of stolen property.
If you agree to a Plea, you would be placed on probation since this is essentially your first criminal offense.
If you have further questions, you may post them here and i will continue to assist. Otherwise, even if you have a subscription with JA please remember to ACCEPT my answer as that is the only way I can get credit for my time and information in this matter. Thank you and Good luck
It is the same. A public defender is an attorney, and a hard working public servant. They are just as dedicated to justice being served.
