Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 425 - This act specifies that receiving stolen property is a Class A misdemeanor unless the value of the property or services exceeds $500, the property has been physically taken from the person of the victim, or if the property is of a certain description. In those cases, the offense is a Class C felony. Receiving stolen property is a Class B felony if the value of the property or services equals or exceeds $25,000.

The receipt of any item, property, or services which exceeds $500 may be considered a separate felony and be charged in separate counts.

A person who commits the crime of receiving stolen property who has a prior conviction involving livestock or captive wildlife, when the value of the stolen property exceeds $3,000, is guilty of a Class B felony. Such a person must serve a minimum prison term of not less than 80 percent of his or her sentence before being eligible for probation, parole, conditional release, or other early release.

This act is identical to a provision of SS/SCS/HCS/HB 111 (2011) and SCS/HCS/HB 600 (2011).
