    WHAT IS AIDING AND ABETTING? In 1999, the North Carolina Supreme Court wrote in State v. Goode that “a person is not guilty of a crime merely because he is present at the scene even though he may silently approve of the crime or secretly intend to assist in its commission.” To be guilty of aiding and abetting, the person “must aid or actively encourage the person committing the crime or in some way communicate to this person his intention to assist in its commission.” ▪ The communication or intent to aid in the crime does not have to be said in words.

    This seems like a charge that Paolo will get dropped.

    Is this more like a type of warning?
    Stupid old law that I’ve never seen charged before. Assuming the officer that pulled them is a ######bag UNC fan (most are) and just wanted Banchero’s name on the report.

    No idea, but hes still under 21 and presumably was also intoxicated which won't be lost when suspension comes down. Would be ironic for him to return for Vegas, sin city afterall.

    If he’s underage, I’m not sure the same threshold applies.

    Driver was under 21, so the limit is not .08. The driver blew .08 exactly.

    Paolo got hit with a low level misdemeanor and was released at the scene. I don’t know North Carolina law but it at least seems possible they were driving Paolo’s car. Could be making it tough on him since he’s underage but honestly the most likely scenario I can come up with was it was a UNC grad cop. Not trying to make light of it but it’s pretty unheard of to get in trouble in Paolo’s case here I think.

    The reason the law was created, I assume, was because drivers and passengers often switched seats. That may have been the case here, and the officer may have suspected as much.

    Paolo turned 19 four days ago

    A friend of mine was charged with aiding and abetting a DUI in WA. His buddy got busted for DUI and after he was released, this guy drove him back to pick up his car while he was still drunk. One got a DUI and the other got aiding and abetting. Let’s wait to see what the police report says about the circumstances.

    I would hate for our upcoming victory vs Dook to be “tainted” by Paolo’s absence.

    The criminal charge of aiding and abetting DWI in North Carolina applies when (a) someone knowingly aids, advises, encourages, or instigates another person to operate a motor vehicle while intoxicated, and (b) the motorist commits the crime of DWI as a result.

    You think a 6’10” guy is climbing over the seats undetected by the officer with his lights on behind them?

    Happens all the time. Now, as for his size, you probably have a valid point.

    Wait, Banchero the only other guy in his vehicle beside driver? From the report, it sounds like it.

    Why in the backseat by himself?

    That, alone, is as odd as the charge...

    In North Carolina it is illegal for those under 21 to drive with any alcohol in their blood, the only legal BAC in North Carolina if 0.00%.

    I suspect in North Carolina even if you have not been drinking if you are riding a vehicle with someone who has been drinking you can be charged with aiding

    and abetting because you did not stop them from driving.

    What does ‘aiding and abetting DWI’ mean? The charge explained.

    If you’re just learning that aiding and abetting DWI is against the law in North Carolina, here’s an explanation of what it means — and some scenarios when it might happen.

    What charges do Duke basketball duo face in Orange County? Here are the police documents.

    Aiding and abetting a DWI in North Carolina can be charged when a person knowingly turns over their own vehicle to someone who is impaired or fails to prevent an impaired person from getting behind the wheel.

    Banchero was / is the registered owner of the vehicle.

    He’ll play against GU. Duke will investigate themselves and find nothing wrong… again

    I'd be super bummed if he didn't play vs GU. Match up with Timme.

    This odd aiding and embedding charge will be dropped eventually, and feel Paolo deserves a 1-game suspension as a reminder to be more aware, send message, be smarter with yourself, then move on.

    Perkins was suspended for two games for dui, even though he was not actively in the process of driving. I’d say 2 games for the star, and 4 for the walk-on.

    On a side note, if Few had been hit with a dui in-season, between games, I suspect the punishment would have been greater. It’s about circumstances.

    …and we don’t know that much about the circumstances. I wonder if the whole story will surface? Who’s going fall on the sword?

    Was at work when I read this TZF, & couldn't stop laughing (perhaps because I'm of the shorter variety). One of my coworkers asked me if I was all right!
    But we don't play nobody.

    Coach K must be furious at these players for going off script of what has been a meticulously scripted ego stroke of a retirement tour season.
    Even though I care a lot about my basketball opinions, they are like comparing a bicycle to a championship motorcycle who is our coach. . ZagsGoZags
