Does guilty by association apply to theft charges?

If I am at the store with someone who stole something, and I did not know that theft was going down, am I guilty just because the cameras showed me walking in with him? How could I be held accountable if someone goes and does something that I know nothing about? The whole scenario is giving me anxiety and I'm being brought in for questioning.

    FACT: The cameras show you with some that is stealing. You say you did not know. The store and law enforcement say you did know. Who will decide? THE JURY.
