You could be convicted, question is what other evidence they may have. Photos or video of items bring taken by you? Items taken by you and given to a third party? Any other type of incriminating evidence. Reasonable doubt is key ew and prosecutors can only meet that burden with credible evidence of the crime.

It presents a much bigger challenge for theprosecution. If charged you need experienced and aggressive representation.

You can be charged and possibly convicted depending on the evidence. If you have been charged, take this seriously. Many people make the mistake of not getting a good lawyer since they assume there is not enough evidence to convict. The prosecutor's office has attorneys with years of experience convicting people. You need someone even better on your side.
