Under the law his brother is accountable for what his co-conspirator did. He could for example have been the getaway driver which makes him guilty of the crime as well. By the way did you know that if you have been charged as an accomplice that it’s the same as being the main perpetrator?
If you are facing charges of conspiracy I strongly recommend that you get a criminal defense attorney to represent you as the charges can carry life-altering punishments and ramifications
