Aristotle would have accepted Socrates verdict. The fact that he chose not to do the same was no indication that he thought Socrates was wrong. According to the law, one could accept banishment or death. Both were acceptable outcomes, so there was nothing to dispute.
Aristotle’s argument was with the city of Athens, not with Socrates.

The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently; but he is willing, in great crises, to give even his life – knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live…Aristotle.

It’s interesting that Plato was never called to account for his teachings?
