Aiding and Abetting

Criminal charges can usually be brought against someone who helps in the commission of a crime. It’s not necessary for the aiding or abetting party to directly participate in the crime, or even be present at the time of it’s commission in order to merit criminal charges.

What exactly constitutes aiding and abetting varies from state to state, and the variety can be great, so check your state laws before you go ahead and help out your local criminals. :)
