PostSubject: What is an Accessory After the Fact?   Fri Aug 12, 2016 9:42 pm


Accessory after the fact is a legal term that can be used to charge people who knowingly help a person who has committed a crime. Being charged with this crime may mean facing charges similar to the crime was that was committed by someone. For example, helping a murderer after he has committed a crime could make someone an accessory to murder, even if that person had nothing to do with the crime.

One of the reasons this charge exists, and it may be differently named or perceived differently in a variety of jurisdictions, is to discourage people from giving aid to those who commit crimes. There are a number of ways to get charged with accessory after the fact. A person could give a criminal money so he could escape the law, hide information about a crime so that the criminal is not charged, hide the actual criminal or in some way harbor and shelter him or her so that the person committing the crime avoids arrest and prosecution.
