Often we have clients confused how they are charged with a crime when they were not actively involved with the crime itself.  The answer, they are charged under the theory of complicity.  Colorado has enacted the statute of complicity stating, "A person is legally accountable as principal for the behavior of another constituting a criminal offense 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 the planning or committing the offense." C.R.S 18-1-603
