If I unknowingly drove my friend from a crime scene, am I aiding and abetting?
The other night, a friend and I went to the local gas station to buy some cigarettes. I stayed in the car, keeping it running through the cold weather, while he went in to make the purchase. He was back in the car before I knew it. He calmly told me he was going to be late getting home and we should go quickly. I left quickly and we returned to his home. Little did I know, he actually had stolen the cigarettes from the gas station. He was caught on camera and the police arrested him. Are the police going to come to me for aiding in his crime?
