Here's how it WAS: Penal Code 31 PC (California's aiding and abetting law) reads: "All persons concerned in the commission of a crime, whether it be felony or misdemeanor, and whether they directly commit the act constituting the offense, or aid and abet in its commission, . . . are principals in any crime so committed." "Aiding and abetting" (also sometimes called "accomplice liability") is not a separate crime. Rather, it's a legal principle set forth in California's Penal Code that allows the state to prosecute everyone who is "in on" a crime--even if they don't perpetrate the crime directly. I heard it on The John & Ken Show on KFI Radio Stream on iHeart Radio app this afternoon, but held back from posting - but after I didn't see the subject come up - here's a late post....... sorry if I somehow missed the post or if it happened already. BUT ---> PC31 is going to be removed from the California Penal Code; (and yeah - I still listen to SoCal radio just to see how far off normal it can go - California, that is). Comments?
