In order to convict Glasgow on complicity, the state has to show Glasgow knew. On felony murder have to show Glasgow went to commit a felony.

The evidence after Town’s Exited the vehicle no testimony Town’s ever re-entered the Glasgow vehicle.
The state grasped at straws saying Glasgow never attempted to flee the scene. Judge Lewis said that would have been worse. Goodman kept insisting that Glasgow never called 911. But not calling 911 was no crime.
Goodman said Glasgow assisted Town’s in finding the vehicle. But that was not a crime.
Houston County District Court Judge Benjamin Lewis, after arguments from council, Judge Lewis said he sees no evidence of any intent to commit any felony. The theory was he was complicit that his acts were linked but no evidence is seen.
