Possession of a Stolen Vehicle requires that the person know the vehicle is stolen, have possession of the vehicle, and not have any legal grounds to have the vehicle. To have legal grounds is to actually believe that you had purchased the vehicle or that the vehicle was yours. If you or a loved one are facing stolen vehicle charges in Oklahoma, you need a Fierce Advocate and experienced criminal defense attorney on your case.
