[Amended by Ord. No. 588; Ord. No. 639]
(1) 
Whoever is concerned in the commission of an ordinance violation is a principal and may be charged with and convicted of the commission of the ordinance violation although he did not directly commit and although the person who directly committed it has not been convicted or has been convicted of some ordinance violation based on the same act.
(2) 
A person is concerned in the commission of an ordinance violation if he:
(a) 
Directly commits the ordinance violation;
(b) 
Intentionally aids and abets the commission of the violation; or
(c) 
Is a party to a conspiracy with another to commit or advises, hires, counsels or otherwise procures another to commit the violation. Such a party is also concerned in the commission of any other violation which is committed in pursuance of the intended violation and which under the circumstance is a natural and probable consequence of the intended violation. This does not apply to a person who voluntarily changes his mind and no longer desires that the violation be committed and notifies the other parties concerned of his withdrawal within a reasonable time before the commission of the violation so as to allow the others also to withdraw.
