Can you get charged for felony for opening a parcel accidentally? Some incompetent delivery guy put a $1000 parcel in the lobby of my apartment, and not realizing that only 1 of the 2 boxes was mine, I took them both to my apartment as quickly as possible and opened them, then I realized only one of the parcels was mine. I put it back to the lobby. Question is if I can get charged for felony.
Theoretically you could, but that's highly unlikely if what you say is all there is to it. The prosecutor would have to have good evidence that you had a criminal intent, for example intended to make off with the goods. You could even attach a note of explanation to overcome any suspicion of criminal intent.
