If I was not even cited or arrested but fired for theft of a controlled substance what should I do?

I was confronted with video of myself stealing hydrocodone from the pharmacy that I work at. I was not arrested but the police were notified and came out and read me my rights. I spoke to an officer briefly but they let me go home. I'm afraid I will be arrested at home when alone with my 6 year old. What should I do?

    I strongly suggest that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for a face-to-face consultation and give him/her all of the facts surrounding your situation. (S)he would then be in a better position to analyze your case and advise you of your options. Under no circumstances should you talk to the police or anyone else regarding this without your attorney present.

    I'd recommend contacting defense attorneys who practice in that jurisdiction and retain one of them; he/she may recommend setting up a relationship (account) with a bail bondsman. I.e. I'd say you should prepare to be charged.

    You have the right to remain silent. Only idiots talk to investigators/cops. Remember, no matter what you say it will be twisted around and used against you later. Now you should expect a letter in the mail with a court date.

    You will receive a notice in the mail to appear at your arraignment. It is highly unlikely that you will be arrested before hand.

    Meet with an attorney, and get your bond money together, because you will be arrested.
