1 - You've received stolen property. It doesn't belong to you. The police can take it back and give it to Richard. A bill of sale wouldn't have helped you any. You probably won't be prosecuted because you are a victim. But you probably need to get in front of this by calling the authorities and tell them what happened. Might be a good idea to talk to a lawyer first, but do it quick. The longer you sit on it the more guilty you look.
2 - You can certainly sue Joe for the $25,000 but, even if you got a judgment, the chances of ever seeing your money are probably slim. Whether Joe can be put in jail for what he did is something the police or prosecutor will have to figure out.
Warning: Legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here are simplified and might not fully explain the ramifications of your particular issue. I am not a lawyer. I do not give legal advice. I make comments based on my knowledge and experience. I guarantee nothing. If you act on my comments without the advice of an attorney, you do so at your own risk.
