That's kind of how Moussauoi (sp?) got out of the death penalty. The jury said he was just along for the ride and there was not point in making a hanger-on some sort of martyr. That's how I remember it, anyway.
Except the brother here was more than just along for the ride. There were only two guys. He was one, and he was shooting at police until the end.
