Re: possession of auto law question

No this is bogus as long as you have the paper or electronic trail to show that you bought it in good faith.

Quite frankly you might even be able to keep the auto as an innocent owner.

If the cops do arrest you I would get a good attorney, not only will you will, but you will have a hell of a malicious prosecution case against them.
