Let the comments begin... You probably could just sit back and relax, have a cold one, and wait for them (the G-Men) to return your "personal property" to you, as described below in Georgia Code, assuming you are the rightful owner of such confiscated personal property (declaring your innocence of aiding/abetting a felon in the commission of a crime): "(a)(1) Except as provided in Code Sections 17-5-55 and 17-5-56 and subsections (d), (e), and (f) of this Code section, when a law enforcement agency assumes custody of any personal property which is the subject of a crime or has been abandoned or is otherwise seized, a disposition of such property shall be made in accordance with the provisions of this Code section. When a final verdict and judgment is entered finding a defendant guilty of the commission of a crime, any personal property used as evidence in the trial shall be returned to the rightful owner of the property within 30 days following the final judgment; provided, however, that if the judgment is appealed or if the defendant files a motion for a new trial and if photographs, videotapes, or other identification or analysis of the personal property will not be sufficient evidence for the appeal of the case or new trial of the case, such personal property shall be returned to the rightful owner within 30 days of the conclusion of the appeal or new trial, whichever occurs last." However, by Federal Code, if you cannot establish your innocence of aiding and abetting a felon's firearm ownership, An individual who aids and abets a felon's firearm ownership can be charged as an accomplice to the felon-in-possession offense, pursuant to 18 USC § 2(a). The circuit courts currently are split over whether a defendant charged with aiding and abetting a felon under § 922(g)(1) can be held strictly liable for knowing the principal's status as a convicted felon. Some circuits apply a strict liability standard, while other circuits insist that the defendant must possess knowledge or "reasonable cause to believe" that the principal is a convicted felon for the defendant to be convicted as an accomplice under § 922(g)(1).
