inducir al delito/instigar al delito
Explanation:
La persona que induce es el inductor. El delito lleva el nombre de "inducción al delito" y también "instigación al delito"

Si DeLorean se metió en líos penales fue por aceptar un negocio de drogas para tratar de salvar su compañía. El negocio de narcotráfico fue un anzuelo puesto por la CIA para pillarle con las manos en la masa, y aplicando el principio de que "es un delito inducir al delito", DeLorean se pudo librar de todo ello.

disagree  Sandro Tomasi: This means criminal solicitation, not abet. "Instigar" or "provocar" are crimes; "abet" is only an element of a crime.

disagree  Sandro Tomasi: I don't agree that Latin terms should not be translated. For example, in Spanish they use "in dubio pro reo," but in English the Latin term is not used and "reasonable doubt" is used instead. // Most Eng.-speaking lawyers do not know "in dubio pro reo."

Reference: inducir es un verbo, instigar es un delito

Reference information:
Black's Law (6th edition) definition of “abet”:
"To encourage, incite or set another on to commit a crime… ".
Black’s Law definition of "abettor":
"An instigator, a setter on; one who promotes or procures a crime to be committed... A person who, being present, incites another to commit a crime, and thus becomes a principal."
El Diccionario de Ciencias Jurídicas, Políticas y Sociales de Manuel Ossorio define "Instigación" de la siguiente manera:
"Constituye una forma de la participación criminal, consistente en inducir directamente a otra persona a la realización del delito de que se trate. Puede decirse que los códigos penales castigan al instigador con igual pena que al autor material".

“Inducir” es un verbo, “Instigar” es un delito.

Peer comments on this reference comment (and responses from the reference poster)
agree  Richard Boulter: Absolutely right. 'To aid' = 'auxiliar' and others. But 'to abet' means something different, with other sanctions applied for the crime. My reading is that both 'inducir' & 'instigar' are included in 'abet', but English surely='instigate & encourage'.
2 hrs
  -> We have the same perspective. Thanks, Rick.
neutral  Toni Castano: Not for Spain, Flavio. In our Criminal Code "inducción" is clearly and "beyond any reasonable doubt" a crime, not merely a verb ("inducir"). See arts. 18 and 28 CP. Of course, we don´t know what country the translation is for :-( Saludos, Toni.
12 hrs
  -> Toni, no sé a qué capítulo te refieres. Podrías proporcionar un enlace a internet para poder ver el texto que estás citando. Si lo indicas en el recuadro sección "Post discussion entry" podemos continuar el diálogo allí. Saludos.
neutral  Sandro Tomasi: Ambos son verbos. (ver "inductor" bajo Ossorio). "Abet" no es un delito, sino un elemento de un delito. // Che, loco, y vos también me hacés laburar a mi. Te explico más en otro momento porque ya son las 3 de la matina, viejo.

  -> Ayayay, Sandro. Cómo me hacés laburar, che!!!... Okay, ver aclaraciones arriba en "post discussion entry".
