Trafficking in Stolen Property

Trafficking in Stolen Property in Washington State is split up into two degrees, both of which are felonies. Trafficking in Stolen Property in the First Degree is a Class B Felony, while Trafficking in Stolen Property in the Second Degree is a Class C Felony.
"Traffic" means "to sell, transfer, distribute, dispense, or otherwise dispose of stolen property to another person, or to buy, receive, possess, or obtain control of stolen property, with intent to sell, transfer, distribute, dispense, or otherwise dispose of the property to another person."
Under RCW 9A.82.050, a person is guilty of Trafficking in Stolen Property in the First Degree if he or she "knowingly initiates, organizes, plans, finances, directs, manages, or supervises the theft of property for sale to others, or who knowingly traffics in stolen property"
Second Degree (RCW 9A.82.055) is different than first degree in that the person does not have to "knowingly" act, just be "reckless" in acting.
