For this assignment, read the scenario below and write an essay detailing your response.
Scenario – Your supervising attorney asked you to
do intake on a “receiving stolen property” charge, and you want to
verify what the statute says and what it means.
Using Lexis.com, find and cite the statute in Florida that makes
it a criminal offense to receive, possess, or transport stolen
property. It may be located in a special section of the code or may be
part of a general theft statute section.
Go to AmJur2d and find the article that states the
elements of receiving stolen property. Possible searches include:
receipt of stolen property, receiving stolen property, or possession and
transportation of stolen property. The live lecture this week will
assist you in effectively using AmJur2d and theft or receiving statutes.
In a one to two page essay, review the elements of
receiving stolen property in AmJur2d and compare them to the statute
you found. How do those elements match the statute you found? Which
elements are different? Cite your sources and show the statute you found
in Lexis.com in a screen shot.
