Accessory

An accessory to a crime is a person who promotes, contributes and facilitates the commission of a crime either before the crime occurs or after it occurs. Unlike an accomplice, who is generally involved to a greater degree and is often present at the crime scene, or a conspirator, who specifically partakes in the plan to carry out the crime, an accessory has only a contributory role, usually before or after the crime takes place.

For example, an accessory before the fact, may deliberately leave a door unlocked when he leaves work so that a perpetrator can gain access. An accessory after the fact may harbor, conceal or aid in the concealment of the perpetrator or of the stolen goods after the crime is committed.
