Welcome

Welcome to my Law blog specifically intended as an aid to law students. I will post comments and white papers, from time to time, and I am happy to carry on conversations with students who are in need of help in law school.


I am most conservative and appropriate in my approach so if you comment and/or have questions to ask, please do so with an equal degree of appropriateness.



I am a Professor of Law at Concord Law School, an Internet Law School located in Los Angeles, though I live, teach and otherwise work out of Lakewood, Colorado, resting up against the foothills just west of Denver.

7 - Criminal Law - Death Crimes (Accomplice Liability)

Criminal Law - Death Crimes (Accomplice Liability)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FOLLOWING IS TAKEN FROM SOME OF MY CLASS NOTES, SOME OF WHICH IS MY OWN PERSONAL WORK AND SOME OF WHICH BELONGS TO CONCORD LAW SCHOOL.  IT IS POSTED TO HELP MY IL STUDENTS IN PARTICULAR.  IT CANNOT BE DISSEMINATED WITHOUT EXPRESS, WRITTEN PERMISSION.

Just a quick comment regarding accomplice liability.


Accomplice liability is a device by which one person may be held vicariously liable for the acts of another. Here is the rule: One who aids, abets, encourages, or assists another is as guilty as the one who commits the crime.

Also, the same results can come from solicitation and conspiracy: Each member of the conspiracy is liable for any crime committed by a co-conspirator in furtherance of the conspiracy and which is a reasonably foreseeable consequence of the conspiracy.
