Are all co-conspirators equally liable in FL?
In FL all co-conspirators are equally (or “jointly”) responsible for all of the natural and probable consequences of the conspiracy, including any unanticipated but reasonably foreseeable actions of their co-conspirators which occurred in furtherance of the common scheme
Let me say that again… In FL you are liable for the reasonably foreseeable acts of your co-conspirators when they occur during the course of the crime, even for additional criminal acts and restitution.
So if you and 2 others agree to rob a bank, and the plan calls for Susie to carry the shotgun, you to hold the stash bag and Little Jimmy to stay in and drive the get-away car, and if, during the course of the robbery Susie shoots and kills someone, then all 3 of you are going to face charges for armed robbery and felony murder, even though only Susie was armed, even if you had expressly agreed that the shotgun would be unloaded and only used as a prop and even though Little Jimmy never even entered the bank.
