A person can be convicted of a crime if they directly participate in the crime. A person can also be convicted of a crime when they do not directly participate but they know of the perpetrator’s unlawful purpose and they specifically intends to, and does in fact, aid, facilitate, promote, encourage, or instigate the perpetrator’s commission of that crime. Some common examples of aiding and abetting are (1) Driving a get-a-way car (2) Being a look-out (3) Verbally telling the perpetrator things like “hit him, shoot him, rob him, do it, etc.”

Mere presence at the crime scene is not enough to get sustain a conviction.
