Petit Larceny is a misdemeanor. However, if the prosecution proves that you knew the phone was stolen, they can charge you with Concealing Stolen Property, which is a felony. Nevertheless, it sounds like an honest mistake that will easily be dismissed. Bring your phone and your phone bill showing that you accidentally picked up the wrong phone. Unless there is some other evidence showing that you intentionally took the persons's phone, it should be an easy dismissal.Ask a similar question
