I think you misunderstand my father. He’s not the type of person who would lead someone into committing a heinous crime.
Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means lead so the verb vocab version is to lead.
The reading for this one is a bit difficult, but there's a hint in the kanji. See the 道 in there on the top? What's the reading for the vocab version of that kanji? It's みち. That's the first part. Now, who are you leading? Let's say you're leading a bee back to its nest, via the road. It's a 道 Bee (みちび)!
