    indulged

    My name is included in the robberies though I really not indulged in it.

    Please check whether I have correctly used the word `indulged' in the above sentence.

    Re: indulged

    I'd say 'though I really did not participate in them'.

    Thank you.

    But, I think, indulge also somehow expresses the same meaning though not precisely.

    Am I right?

    Please help me.

    No, it does not have the same meaning.

    Indulge implies gratification.
    Participate means to take part.

    You can participate in crime and indulge in chocolates.
