I do not think you can be criminal charged. Anyone can take you to court, but does not mean they will win.

It depends upon the terms in which it was given.

Charged with what? A crime? Of course not. If your friend gave you something and you sold it, and said you lost it, then yes.

Not if you honestly misplaced it. Theft requires criminal intent.
