My question involves criminal law for the state of: Texas
I purchased something from a pawn shop a few weeks back. I do have a receipt. Turns out the item was stolen and the original owner is asking me to return the property. I have not been contacted by the police. Just the previous owner...who does appear to be the original owner.
Is it as simple as moral vs. legal?
Can I be forced to return the property. I did make a legal purchase. Am I now the rightful owner of the property?
