Aiding & Abetting Defense Lawyers
Aiding or abetting a crime occurs when someone helps the commission of the crime even though they do not commit it themselves. The person who aids the crime is usually not present when the crime occurs, but this does not mean they will not be found guilty of aiding or abetting. Aiding a crime can involve many things such as getting the criminal items necessary to commit the crime or giving them necessary information. In order to be found guilty of aiding a crime, the defendant must be proven to have known that their actions helped in the commission of a crime, or at the very least, they should have a reasonable suspicion. Sometimes one person may help another but remain completely unaware that their actions actually abetted a crime.
