I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma.
If the gold stolen, and sold by, was worth more than $250.00, and you conspired with him to get and sell the gold, then you could be charged with felony Larceny
under MA laws.
In MA, if you are convicted of felony larceny, sentencing does vary,and while the maximum sentence
for larceny is five years in prison, (the maximum sentence for district courts
is two and a half), if you are a first time offender is possible that you will receive a fine and probation.
If you only received the property and did not conspire to steal it, while you could still be sent to jail if convicted---that would be unlikely if this is a first offense and would be charged as a misdemeanor
and NOT a felony.
I wish you the best in 2012.
