Fishers, IN asked in Criminal Law for Indiana

Q: I might be prosecuted soon for stealing from Walmart, what should I do?

I worked in the Deli, and starting on December, I would give out food for cheaper prices for associates and myself. They questioned me today, and fired me as well. I also wrote a statement on the whole issue. I haven’t talked to police yet, and I haven’t got any word today. I also don’t have an attorney and don’t have money for one.

A: You should not talk to anyone other than an attorney about the situation; anything you say can be used against you. You should try and hire an attorney, most have payment plans. If you cannot afford an attorney and are charged then request a public defender.
