sold the property to the intended receiver who believed it is stolen
property. In modern jurisdictions that follow the Model Penal Code, which

The receiver is not guilty of any crime since he did not
receive property that was stolen as it had lost its character as stolen

stolen property.

C

The receiver is guilty of receiving stolen property since he
had believed the property to be stolen.

Which of the following accurately states the holding of the
court in Milanovich v. United States, 365 U.S. 551 (1961)?

distinct and neither will merge into the other, so the defendant can be
convicted of both crimes.

reach a new group of wrongdoers, not to multiply the offense of the thief;
thus, defendant cannot be convicted of both larceny and receipt of stolen
property.
