Except as provided in section
, clause (3), when any crime is committed or participated
in by two or more persons, any one of whom participates only under compulsion by another
engaged therein, who by threats creates a reasonable apprehension in the mind of such participator
that in case of refusal that participator is liable to instant death, such threats and apprehension
constitute duress which will excuse such participator from criminal liability.
