What would happen if you unwittingly made a one time sale of a firearm to someone who used the gun in a crime or was not supposed to have a weapon. What would happen if the firearm was trced back to you?

How do you know if the person is a criminal or has criminal intent?

If you KNOW he isnt allowed to have a firearm you're in deep doo-doo. If you were unaware and you followed state laws for transfer, then you dont have much to worry about. Here in VA, a private seller doesnt have to go thru a State NICS check. But if you knowingly sell to a prohibited person, you're fried.

I made the mistake of selling a crappy gun to a person who LATER became a felon. He ended up being caught for many counts of pitbull fighting. Argh, my blood still boils when I think of it....

Kind of happened to me.
Something like 10-11 years ago I sold a Colt Delta Elite 10mm to a cousin of a girl I worked with.
He was looking for a .45 auto and had the green purchase permit issued by the police in MI to buy.
It was issued a couple of days earlier and still was valid for 7 more days so we filled out the paperwork and traded the pistol for $700.00.
One year later a deputy sheriff comes a knocking with a message to call a detective in Boston?
Turns out the guy never turned in the paperwork and shot someone with the pistol and tossed it.
It was traced back to me.
Told the detective my story and asked for the gun back.
No luck.
But no laws broken by me either so

Let’s say, hypothetically, you live in Texas and you sell a firearm to someone that, unknown to you may have a questionable background or may want to use the gun for criminal activity. But, the person assured you that they had no felonies and was a fine upstanding citizen.

if they tell you that they are "clear" and you "belive" them, then you are golden.
