abet (verb) help, assist in crime or in wrong doing.
Helping, encouraging, or assisting a person in doing anything wrong or a crime is abetting it. If we help a person plan a crime, provide information necessary for committing a crime, or supply him with weapons to commit a crime, we abet the crime.
- A person abetting a crime, in the eyes of the law, is as guilty as the person who has committed the crime.
