When your wanted rating reaches 5 stars in a mission and you hear the sirens, there will be a "Investigation" prompt next to a LT icon in the top right corner of the screen. Pressing LT will give several options to clear your wanted status, including bribes, calling in favors and destroying evidence. The option you want, should read something along the lines of "Use another criminal as a scapegoat" with the name of the criminal in brackets. Just select this and you're done!


Thanks to georgegrozev in the comments who pointed out that there are occasions where this will not work, and explained the achievement better than me:

"This can't always be done. You must have encountered an independent (not owned by you) criminal business. Criminal businesses are ones like Speakeasy, Distillery, Brewery, Protection Racket, Warehouse, etc. You may very well find yourself in a situation where one isn't available (you bought them all out, or raided them (shut them down), or you simply haven't explored the whole map (by visiting all the informants)."
