Las Vegas Aiding and Abetting Attorney

Have you been charged with aiding and abetting?

A person can be charged with the crime of aiding and abetting if they directed, authorized or assisted someone else in the commission of a criminal offense. They do not have to be present when the offense was committed. If the person is found guilty of aiding and abetting, the penalties are the same as having committed the offense themselves. As an example, a person who aids and abets kidnapping in the first degree is guilty of a category A felony, and can be sentenced for kidnapping in the first degree.

Aiding and abetting laws do not apply to medical marijuana patients, or caregivers who hold a valid registry identification card. These individuals are exempt from prosecution for aiding and abetting another in the possession, delivery of production of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

If you have been charged with aiding and abetting, contact a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer at once for legal advice. You are facing potentially harsh penalties if your charges are related to the commission of a felony or federal crime. A skilled attorney can review your case and discuss your defense options.
