Crim Law/complicity Q

Crim Law/complicity Q
« on: October 18, 2006, 02:48:30 AM »
I just wanted to confirm something... I was going over complicity and I was looking at the common law formulations of accomplice liability and MPC formulations of accomplice liability.

It seems like they are pretty much the same in that they require the same type of acts and same type of mental states. The only real difference I could find is that the MPC allows for one to be an accomplice if they simply ATTEMPT to aid another in the commission of an offense.

Are there any other major differences between the common law and MPC formulation of the acts/mens rea required for accomplice liability that I am missing?

Thanks for the help
