passive participation

passive participation
Something more than a merely passive attitude toward a conspiracy; a passive consent to the object of the conspiracy and concurring with the purposes of the other conspirators, although actually standing by while the others put the conspiracy into effect. O'Neil v State, 237 Wis 391, 296 NW 96, 135 ALR 719.
