I assume that she knew that you were doing this. If not, she may well have a legititmate complaint here. If you sold the jewelty with her permission, then you have a "he said/she said" situation. It will all come down to who the police believe. Clearly, if there are witnesses who can testitfy as the the fact that you had her consent to sell the items or there is something in writing, you will be in a much stronger position; if not things could get complicated for you.

At this point, you should consult directly with a criminal law attorney as to all of this. They will be in the best position to advise you.
