Chapter 8

ACCOMPLICE LIABILITY AND SOLICITATION


Introductory note: This chapter examines two ways in which one person can become criminally liable for exhorting another to commit a criminal act.

If, on the other hand, one encourages another to do a criminal act, and the latter declines, the former is guilty of the crime of “solicitation. We also consider the circumstances under which a corporation may be convicted of a crime based on acts by the corporation's employees.
