Though the question is not clear, it seems that someone may be charged with a crime. In that situation, a criminal lawyer (like me) should be consulted for help, and to discuss what can be done. We would need a more complete set of facts to do that.
The first thing to do is hire a lawyer. the charge of receiving stolen property is serious. However, part of the state's burden will be to prove that the person charged know or had reason to know the property was stolen.
