Spanish term or phrase: autor mediato
Sr. XXX sería el autor mediato que estaría utilizando a aquel tercero como instrumento...

The best I can come up with is "instigator." Surely there's a term of art? Thanks!

"mediato" is not very common, but listen to what Alcaraz


Explanation:
Varo has to say about "autores":
autor=perpetrator, causer, doer; autor material=principal, principal in the first degree; autor por inducción= accessory who counsels and procures, instigator; autor intelectual= abettor. I suppose you'd have to consider the position of the "autor mediato" in the case to adjust it to one of these definitions.

abettor


Explanation:
This is what Black's Law Dictionary says: "abettor: An instigator, or setter on; one who promotes or procures a crime to be commited. One who commands, advises, instigates or encourages another to commit a crime. A person who, being present, incites another to commit a crime, and thus becomes a principal. To be an "abettor" accused must have instigated or advised commission of crime or been present for purpose of assisting in its commission; he must share criminal intent with which crime was committed". "instigate: to stimulate or goad to an action, specially a bad action; one of its synonyms is "abet"".
"Abettor" seems to be more accurate than "instigator".
