Possession of Stolen Property

If one individual has purchased an item from another, and said purchase is discovered several months later to have been stolen from a third party by the seller, what are the legal repercussions for the purchaser? If a bill of sale exists, does this change anything? In this situation, is the purchaser of the stolen property breaking the law?
