Navigating Possession of Stolen Property Allegations
Accord Attorneys is your dedicated legal partner when facing Possession of Stolen Property (PSP) charges, commonly known as "Possession of Property Obtained by Crime." These charges are categorized based on the value of the stolen property, distinguishing between amounts over $5000 and those under $5000. To establish guilt, it must be proven that the property was obtained through a criminal act in Canada and the possessor was aware of its illicit origin.
The legal definition of "possession" encompasses various scenarios, extending beyond physical possession on one's person. It includes knowingly allowing another person to possess the property, consenting to its possession, or deliberately keeping the property in a specific location for personal or collective benefit.
Possession of Stolen Property convictions carries serious consequences, potentially leading to jail time, probation, and fines. Beyond the legal penalties, a conviction may tarnish your reputation, making securing or maintaining employment challenging, particularly in roles involving handling money or valuable assets.
Accord Attorneys strives to secure favourable resolutions tailored to your case. Depending on the circumstances, we may explore options such as out-of-court diversion, negotiating a plea for a lesser charge, or obtaining an order allowing you to serve any jail sentence in the comfort of your home.
