Are you being accused of aiding and abetting a crime? Aiding and abetting is the act of providing assistance to a criminal, whether you helped in the planning stages of a crime or the concealment of the crime after the fact. Often times, people accused of this crime were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, or were convinced not to report a crime by someone close to them. If you're facing aiding and abetting charges, it's time to call an attorney.
Attorneys who specialize in aiding and abetting cases understand the details of the law and will fight to protect your rights as a citizen. Whether you simply failed to report a crime, or are suspected of physically helping someone commit a crime, an attorney can help you understand your rights and defend you in a court of law.
It is important to note that aiding and abetting crimes against children may be a special case, depending on the laws in your state. Some states have mandatory reporting laws when it comes to child abuse cases. In these states, adults in certain positions, such as teachers, doctors, and parents, have a legal obligation to report any crimes taking place against children.
