I was charged with conspiracy to grand larcany i think,and would like a opinion on my situation.

Asked over 1 year ago - Richmond, VA

This happened on my birthday. I was released that night. The guy i was with said he was getting me something for my birthday, so i got a groglide razor, didnt think he had much money so that was something cheap. I picked up a bottle of lotion and got that as well. He asked me where was the body wash i pointed to it. so with it being my birthday i didnt want to just sit in the house so i just went. When we was about to leave, he said to me come on lets go this way(through th garden area in Wal-Mart). I stated no, we have to go this way to the register. He said to me we aint have to pay for s**t lets go. I said no you go head im going to the register because by that time i had picked up some cereal and milk. I payed and left then the police had got us.
