accessory after the fact
Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
I’m not prepared to run the risks of concealment; we’re accessory after the fact. The thing might come out at any time. (J. Galsworthy, “The White Monkey”)
accessory after the fact = concealer, accomplice in a crime after its committing
Thank you for your efforts.
Re: accessory after the fact
Yes. To provide assistance to a perpetrator after a crime has been committed.
