I put a $900 cello on layaway at a local pawn shop in 2007, I paid a total of $350. I lost my job and moved, somehow forgetting about it. Just recently I found my ticket/receipt can I get the money back?
As if that's going to happen. You are talking about an event that happened 10 years ago and the quesiton is :If it wasn't important enough for you to remember for 10 years why do you think you have a cause of action now?"
If the company want's to return all or any portion of the money that is up to them.
I highly doubt it. However, go to the pawn shop, if it still exists, and ask. But do not be surprised if their answer is no. It appears to be abandoned property.
The answer is no. There were terms when you pawned item. You failed to keep your end of bargain. It is probably long gone now.

First - not a criminal defense question. I'll reclassify.
Second - read the terms of your deal on ye contract. I'm almost willing to bet you only had a specified time frame to reclaim your item and pay it off before you lose it. Where do you think all that stuff they sell in pawn shops comes from? Things people pawn and never reclaim.
