State: South Carolina

What is the maximum fine for the charges of receiving stolen goods and obtaining funds under false pretenses?? The latter pertains to pawning an item that I purchased which i pawned not knowing it was stolen property.

Answer

Make sure you get counsel (or at least the public defender) to try to keep this off your record eventually--jail time is probably not likely if your record is very clear now. But having that arrest and or a conviction on your record will make job-hunting etc. more difficult. Often this could be negotiated down to some kind of court supervision etc.
