What are Possible Defenses against an Accusation of Receiving Stolen Property?

Receiving stolen property is a crime, so all the defenses available for other crimes can be used.  Common defenses include: 

What if I Paid Full Price for the Stolen Property?  
This is not a defense.  As long as what you bought was stolen and you knew (or should have known) it was stolen, then paying "full price" for the item is irrelevant.   

How Likely Will any of These Defenses Work?
The best way to determine this is to consult an experienced attorney.  Contacting experienced receiving stolen property lawyers will assist you to analyze your situation and determine the best defenses to pursue. For more information on property theft, see the National Stolen Property Act.
