The act of urging, motivating or provoking a person to commit a crime. Incitement itself may amount to a crime or the person inciting may incur liability as an accessory to the principal offender. The offence is committed even if the crime is not carried out; if the crime is committed, the incitement merges with the crime, and the inciter becomes a principal in the second degree.
