Default Aiding and abetting a fugitive from the law

Is \"aiding and abetting\" also when someone KNOWS the police are looking
for a particular person, but they help hide this person, assist getting away
from the police, hide them in their house/hotel room, sneak from state to state to be
with each other. Have knowledge of their where abouts but say nothing to
authorities.

To assist or encourage someone to remain a fugitive is aiding and abetting.
A short while back the mother of an escaped inmate (awaiting trial for murder) from our county jail helped her child. She is now on trial for this and faces jail time for it. Please do not help your grandchild. Encourage your grandchild to turn him/herself in and quit putting you in this situation. You can be charged or prosecuted for this, especially if their charge is a serious one.

Is knowing where they r at or visiting but not living with them the same as aiding or abetting
