Elements of an accomplice

If a Texas resident is said to be complicit in a crime, it means that he or she helped or played a role in the commission of the felony or misdeameanor. In some cases, an accomplice may face the same penalties as the person who actually committed the crime. This is generally true if a person encouraged an illegal act to take place or didn't do anything to prevent it from happening.

Kidnapping charges in Texas

Individuals in Texas and elsewhere across the nation who are finding themselves involved in a situation that could be interpreted as kidnapping may want to know more about the state and federal laws that might apply to their unique set of circumstances. Kidnapping is defined as the intentional or knowing abduction of another person. In some cases, the taking of a child by a non-custodial parent could result in the filing of kidnapping charges against that party.

Alleged hitman could face life in prison
