Press one criminal to answer (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

response

Here is my best explanation:

'answer' is the definition.

('response' can be a synonym of 'answer')

'press one criminal' is the subsidiary indication.

'criminal' is an anagram indicator.

'press'+'one'='pressone'

'pressone' is an anagram of 'response'.

'to' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for response that I've seen before include "counter", "Answer - retort", "Sees porn (anag) - answer", "Preens so by way of answer", "Reply, rejoinder", "(An) answer", "Reaction, reply", "Answer - reaction", "'Answer, reply (8)'" and "See porn (anag) -- answer".)
