Legal Question

Asked on: 7/29/13, 5:23 am

I got caught shop lifting a $5 cd in may. The officer had me make a deal to we're I would become a drug informer for him since I work in the night life industry. He has called me several times and texted me about going through with it. I spoke to my attourney and he recommended for my safety that it would not be a good idea. He then instructed me to not have any contact with the officer. I recently just moved from Washington, D.C. To Texas.. The night that I moved I went into my work to say y goodbyes and the officer who detained me walks up to me and says " just checking to see if you still work here" then he leaves. Well another month goes by and I'm currently living in Tx. He calls me and leaves me a voice mail and text messages me saying he will have a warrant for my arrest next week. My attourney told me not to worry. I don't know how to feel about it an i wanted a 2nd opinion. Would d.c. Really issue a warrant, expedite me all the way back to d.c. And prosecute me over a cd that was $4.99?
