My sister and I have been charged with shoplifting from our

My sister and I have been charged with shoplifting from our local store. She exited the store while I was still inside. The security guards came up to me and told me I needed to go with them because the girl I was with was caught shoplifting and I was an accessory. Is this even possible for me to get charged because I hadn't yet exited the store?

Hey My name is***** was recently involved in a home invasion.

Hey My name is***** was recently involved in a home invasion. 4 men broke into my home with guns and pistol whipped, beat, kidnapped and robbed my girlfriend and I. They stole over $7000 in Merchandise which include designer shoes and electronics. I had to have emergency surgery to fix my jaw and reconstructive plastic surgery to fix the bones around my eye and a medal plate was put behind my cheek.The cops seem like they are dragging their feet and definitely don't seem like they are on my side trying to catch these guys. 4 xanax pills where found in the living room and the cops are trying to make it seemed like I'm a drug dealer and that is the reason they robbed our home, but the real reason is because I have a Jordan/Shoe collection worth thousands plus jewelry and they were jealous. Honestly I am not involved with any of that. I smoke weed and buy prescription pills in small amounts for personal use only.While I was in the hospital the lawyers question me and my girlfriend. I admitted to nothing but my girlfriend said "Well i remember only 1 time he brought pills for his roommate but that's it" and she did not write an official statement. Now the cops definitely think I had something to do with this robbery but its didn't at all. I just want to know what is my exposure. They only found 4 pills and nothing else. Since I have roommates they cant prove the pills are mine but with what my girlfriend said I'm afraid they are looking into me as well. Do I need a Lawyer. Is their a chance i can get arrested or charged for this. I'm the victim here but I'm worried and don't have money to retain a lawyer. Please Help

In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary

In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary confinement, he attempted to heat a bottle of water with a match and then flushed it in the toilet. He will be charged with (1) Arson, but level 1, 2, 3 or 4 is not known yet. He did not willfully try to burn down the building! He is also charged with (2)Possession of Contraband (matches) by Inmate and (3) Destroying Evidence. He wants to fight the charges because he did not willfully/intentionally attempt to start a fire for any malicious reason. Do you think he has a good case to take to trial? However, if he must plead guilty, are any of these charges a 50% crime? or 85% crime?
