My question involves criminal law for the state of: Mississippi
About four months ago I pawned a camera that belonged to my friend. (Stupid - stupid- I know but he let me use it). I found out that he stole it from someone.
The person knows that he stole the camera. Again, I thought it was his camera. (I was going to go pick it up and give it back to him but found out he stole it).
I would like to go get the camera and give it back to the original owner-or should I give it back to him (who I got it from)?
The pawn shop owner knows the story about my friend stealing the camera. Will I be in trouble if I pick it up? Just some advice needed here. I did not violate any laws.
The original owner said they will not press charges against my friend. But am I involved somehow illegally?
