Dismissed - Refusing to Return Stolen Property and Receiving a Stolen Motor Vehicle

March 2019

Our client was charged with Refusing to Return Stolen Property and Receiving a Stolen Motor Vehicle. After our own investigation, we decided to select a trial date. On the day of trial, both charges of Refusing to Return Stolen Property and Receiving a Stolen Motor Vehicle were dismissed. In order to prove the charge of Receiving a Stolen Motor Vehicle, the Government must show the following: 1) that the defendant (bought) (received) (possessed) (concealed) (obtained control of) a motor vehicle; 2) that the motor vehicle had been stolen; and 3) that the defendant knew or believed it had been stolen. Here, the Commonwealth was unable to show any of these elements and the case was dismissed.
