Q. I was at Walmart with another person who apparently stole something. Now they want me in there store to question and won
A: It would be in your best interest to consult a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible if you haven't already. Based on the limited facts given, it is difficult to say whether the police want to simply question you as a witness or potentially charge you as a party to a crime. A criminal defense attorney would be able to analyze your individual situation, protect your rights, and advise you on how to proceed.
