Additional charges of carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence and accessory after the fact in the murders were also filed against several individuals.

此處如何翻譯accessory?

    "accessory" 在法律上的意思是"協助犯人者"。

    "accessory after the fact" 是"包庇犯人者"(包括"窩藏犯人者"),也就是事後知情卻幫助犯人逃避法律責任的人。

    "accessory before the fact" 是 "同謀"(也可能是"教唆者"),也就是事前知道並協助他人犯罪,卻不親自執行犯罪也沒在案發現場的人。
