Associating with a criminal warns the dreamer of harassment and unscrupulous dealings with people who have little respect for ethics.
If you, the dreamer, are the criminal it denotes that you have infringed upon the rights of others.
Dreams of a criminal symbolize that you are grappling with guilt and shame about something you have done. Keep in mind that you are the only one that can prove your innocence to yourself and set yourself free from the persecution of your own judgmental, critical mind. Forgive yourself and make amends for your misdeeds as you forgive those who have trespassed against you.
To dream of associating with a person who has committed a crime, denotes that you will be harassed with unscrupulous persons, who will try to use your friendship for their own advancement.
To see a criminal fleeing from justice, denotes that you will come into the possession of the secrets of others, and will therefore be in danger, for they will fear that you will betray them, and consequently will seek your removal.
