Theft By Receiving
Knowingly receiving, disposing of or retaining property that has been stolen can result in you being charged with theft by receiving. Even if you weren’t certain, but had reason to believe the property was stolen, you may have committed theft by receiving according to Georgia law.
Theft by receiving is a misdemeanor if the property has a value that’s less than $500. However, theft by receiving is a felony if the value of the property is greater than $500 and you could face a prison sentence of up to 10 years or up to 20 years if the stolen property is an automobile. In addition to prison time, a felony conviction can cause you to lose your job or make it very difficult to find a new job. In addition, a felony conviction for theft by receiving in Georgia can result in the loss of your right to possess a firearm or to vote.
