If I unknowingly received and sold stolen property, what will happen to me?

Question Details:

I had a friend with a gun cabinet holding onto my shot gun after hunting season last year. I wanted to sell my gun. He gave me what he thought was my gun. I had only used this one time since I bought it, so it had the right color barrel and stock and it looked like mine. I held onto it for a few months and then triedto sell it. They offered me more money than I thought it was worth. I took the money and immediately called my friend. He said he thought that he accidentally gave me his gun. It was his brother's gun and he is now claiming to go to the police. What can I do?
