Criminal Law: Causing, Inducing, Permitting, Helping Others to Act
This chapter deals with the place in the criminal law of those relationships termed interpersonal transactions. These are relevant whenever causing, inducing, helping, encouraging, or permitting others to act is a sufficient ground for criminal responsibility, even though the statutory or common law rule under which the liability arises is not expressly formulated in these terms. The first group includes those cases where accused is liable as a principal offender for causing harm through an innocent or irresponsible agent, and the numerous statutory offences which forbid a person to ‘cause’, ‘suffer’, ‘permit’, or ‘allow’ another to do some specified act. The second group deals with the various sorts of participation in crimes committed by others.
