n. A person who aids in the commission of a crime by performing tasks such as driving the getaway car, supplying weapons, assisting in planning, providing an alibi, or concealing the main offender after the crime. Typically, the accessory is not present during the crime but must be aware of its commission or impending occurrence. While the punishment for an accessory is usually less severe than that for the primary perpetrator, a jury or judge may still hold the accessory equally responsible depending on the circumstances.
