A: That's the complicity statute. The potential penalty depends upon the level of offense in which your are allegedly complicit. Basically, what is says is this, if you are complicit in an offense, you are to be treated the same as if you committed the offense yourself. So, if you help someone rob a convenience store its the same as you robbing the place yourself.

A: I agree with Mr. Williams. It depends on the underlying offense. The Ohio Supreme Court puts out a felony sentencing quick reference guide. You can look it up easily online. It may provide you with some basic information.

Best of luck.
