How do police determine they were stolen? The person who owns them tells the police that you had them without her permission - therefore they are stolen. Is that what you are asking????

This is a 3rd degree offense. You face a maximum sentence of between 3 and 5 years in State Prison. Depending on the circumstances and your prior record probation or PTI may be an option. Hiring a good attorney is important.
It is a 3rd degree crime. If a first offense the case could be downgraded or PTI could happen. Otherwise it is 3-5 years but likely just probation. The degree of theft charges (this includes receiving) are determined by the value. $500-$75000 is 3rd degree. 4th degree is $200-$499. A DP is under $200. The receiving is provable by the time from the theft, whether the amount you are selling or buying it for is nuts or you can't produce a receipt etc. Also if the item is identifiable and it is certainly not yours it is tough to say how you got it. It is too bad about the bondsman. You may have been able to post only 10% and got that money back.
This is a 3rd degree crime punishable by up to a $15,000.00 fine and from 3 to 5 years in jail. If you want to win and reduce these penalties you better get yourself a good criminal lawyer. Remember the fines and the penalties you get today can be paid and served but your record will stay with you for life and if you want to change this you need to take action today. Good Luck
