Trafficking in Stolen Property

A.R.S. 13-2307 – Trafficking in Stolen Property

This charge has a first degree offense and a second degree. 

The second-degree trafficking of stolen property

This occurs when a person recklessly traffics the property of another that was stolen. Sometimes this can be associated with the theft of means of transportation if you resell a car that you obtained for cheap, that was stolen. This happens often with things purchased online or on the streets that are resold. If someone does not ask enough questions as to why they are getting such a good deal, they may be charged with this crime. 

Second-degree trafficking of stolen property is a Class 3 felony. This carries a range of 2 years in prison as a up to 8.75 years. If this is a first offense probation is possible. Again, the judge can also sentence a person to probation with zero days in jail, or up to 1 year in jail, as long as this is a person’s first felony offense. We often see numerous dates of offenses charged with this type of crime. If there are three offenses in the complaint from different dates then the person is prison mandatory with a range of 3.25-16.25 years in prison. Two allegeable historical priors would put the person in a range of 7.5-25 years in prison. 

First-degree trafficking stolen property

First-degree offenses occur when a person knowingly initiates, organizes, plans, finance, directs, manages, or supervises the theft and trafficking of the property of another. Pawnshop transactions are often associated with this offense. Police have many ways of obtaining your pawnshop history, including sales and purchases. 

First-degree trafficking in stolen property is a 2 felony and it carries the following punishment for first-time offenders charged with just one date of offense: 3 – 12.5 years with the possibility of probation. A judge can decide to sentence the person to probation with zero days in jail, or up to 1 year in jail, as a condition of that probation. If the person has two allegeable historical felony convictions they face a range of 10.5-35 years in prison. If three or more dates of offense are in the complaint, with no priors the person is prison mandatory with a range of 4.5-23 years.
