A dangerous expansion of Oregon's aid and abet liability.

Today the Oregon Supreme Court upheld Ronald Everett's conviction for Solicitation to Commit Aggravated Murder on the grounds that he solicited someone to deliver damaging information about an outlaw biker to other members of that individual's outlaw biker gang, in the hopes that members of that gang might act on such information by murdering that outlaw biker.

Oregon Supreme Court invalidates aid and abet jury instruction

Today the Oregon Supreme Court invalidated a critical portion of a Uniform Criminal Jury Instruction providing that someone who aids or abets another person in committing a crime is responsible not only for the commission of the intended crime, but for all other criminal acts committed as a "natural and probable consequence of the planning, preparation, or commission of the intended crime." In invalidating this portion of the instruction,  Petronilo Lopez-Minjarez'z aggravated murder and other convictions were overturned.
