Compounding a felony is a crime which may be committed by a victim of another crime. Assume A is raped by B. B has been charged with the offence of rape but A is being pressurized to drop the complaint against B. If A agrees and tries to withdraw the complaint, then A may also be charged with the offence of compounding a felony because it is an offence to withdraw serious crimes of which rape is one.
