Receiving Stolen Goods

Article 416 of the Dutch Criminal Code

If you are suspected of receiving stolen goods, you are suspected of an offense against property. Receiving stolen goods means that you possessed an item while knowing it was obtained through a criminal offense. Receiving stolen goods can be charged both as an independent offense and as a subsidiary offense when the primary charge is theft. A charge is the description on the summons/citation you receive when you have to appear before the judge. If you are suspected of an offense against property, such as theft or receiving stolen goods, it is advisable to contact Noordanus Advocatuur for advice and representation during the trial.
