Guilty party (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

culprit

'guilty party' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for culprit that I've seen before include "One perpetrating crime" , "The one to blame, guilty party" , "baddie" , "Perpetrator of a wrongdoing" , "Offender or guilty party" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun and The Guardian.
