What is Complicity in Denver, Colorado?
In Denver County, or anywhere in the state of Colorado, "a person is legally accountable as principal (the person that committed the crime) if, with the intent to promote or facilitate the commission of the offense, he or she aids, abets, advises, or encourages the other person in planning or committing the offense." See, C.R.S. 18-1-603. Because no one in Colorado is actually charged with a crime call "Complicity", you might be wondering "What is Complicity?". Instead, it is a principal of law that permits prosecutors to charge someone with a crime, so long as they played a role in helping someone commit the crime(s).
