Accomplice

An accomplice is a person who participates in the commission of a crime, but does not actually commit the criminal offense. An accomplice is often distinguished from an accessory because the accomplice is present at the crime scene. For example, if Joe drives the car and serves as look-out, and Frank enters the house and steals the television, Joe is an accomplice.
