My juvenile son is being held on a felony auto theft. his friend and him were both witnessed driving the stolen vehicle.

Inver Grove Heights, MN |

who should be held accountable for the actual auto theft charge?

Attorney Answers 4


Legally, if there were both taking part in the commission of the crime, they could both be held accountable. This is obviously a very serious charge. I recommend you obtain experienced counsel as soon as possible.

Best of luck to you and your son.

Crimes can be committed by more than one person. When there, this can be called a criminal conspiracy - even if there are difference in levels of culpability. He needs help from a criminal defense lawyer experienced in juvenile delinquency cases.
