When you help, protect or intentionally encourage someone to sexually abuse a child, you become an abettor of child sexual abuse 1.
For example, if someone tells you that they want to shoot pornographic videos of his neighbour who is a child and you knowingly encourage them to go ahead and they buy a camera and film the child, then both of you can be punished.0
