If he sins it is probably by mistake.Since you are smarter,you are more responsible.
"Rash Lakish said, "The person who speaks Lashon Hara, piles sins up to the sky." A
person gets two punishments for speaking badly about someone. First, he gets a
punishment for the evil that he spoke. Secondly, he gets the sins of the person that he
spoke about. (Ein Yaakov) Try to make it a habit to think of excuses for people , when it
seems that they have done something wrong. However, when you think about yourself,
do not make excuses. You should take responsibility for what you have done.
