aiding and abetting after the fact

This is the broad "legalese" term for various types of acts of "encubrimiento", but as Phil indicated, additional context as to the exact nature of this case of "encubrimiento" would be needed to enable us to offer a more precise translation.

For info, in the Spanish Criminal Code "encubrimiento" includes the following:

--"ocultando, alterando o inutilizando el cuerpo, los efectos o los instrumentos de un delito, para impedir su descubrimiento" (concealing, altering or destroying physical evidence, or the effects or instrumentalities of an offense to prevent their being discovered)


--"ayudando a los presuntos responsables de un delito a eludir la investigación de la autoridad o de sus agentes, o a sustraerse a su busca o captura" (aiding the alleged perpetrators of a crime to elude the investigation of the authorities or their agents, or to prevent their being found and apprehended)

Hope some of this is helpful.
