Will I face jail time for felony shoplifting if the person I was with confesses to the crime
Personal Injury Lawyer
See my guide as it pertains to predictions.
You should hire/retain a lawyer. You might, depending on all the facts, still be prosecuted on a theory of aiding and abetting, or conspiracy.
Talk to no one else.

In Georgia, there is a statute regarding a "Party to a Crime" that provides that someone who assists another in committing a crime is just as responsible and faces the same punishment as the person who technically committed the crime. If you are charged with any felony, you really need a lawyer working with you to protect your interests and get the best outcome possible. Please let me know if I can be of assistance. I would be happy to help.
