How do they prosecute "Posession of Stolen Property" cases?

My step-son noticed some items along the curb near some trash cans on garbage day. A few hours later he noticed they were still there so he picked them up thinking they were trash since they were next to the cans for a few hours. He later sold them at a pawn shop for $50. A few days later the Police called him and he went to the Police station to discuss the issue. Turns out the owner reported the items stolen. They charged him with possession of stolen property. He didn't deny selling the items to the pawn shop - he couldn't since they take your license as ID and report all items purchased and by whom to the Police, but he did deny knowing they were stolen. Also, he is not charged with any type of theft, just possession. He has not seen the police report so he does not know if the address they were reported stolen from is the same as where he picked them up or on what date they were reported stolen. He has plead not guilty and now has to go to trial. Can someone explain to me how this will or should play out in court? Keep in mind he did not (knowingly) steal them, did not know they were stolen, and admitted selling them. Thanks
