On page 84 of Thunder Rebels it list some punishments. For failing to alert the clan, various fines. For more active roles, fines + outlawry. This includes "those who sacrifice to Predark, or seek its mystery, knowingly or unknowingly, whether ill come of it or no," That's 20 cows (blood price for 2 cottars) and outlawry (of the permanent kind, I imagine).
On page 44 of the same book, there is a quote from "Andrin's Words" which lists "to befoul oneself in consorting with the Predark," as one of the capital crimes. Which is a bit confusing, since other parts of the book suggest that the clan cannot execute one of its own (one of the problems with kinslaying), and Andrin is the clan (as opposed to Tribal) lawspeaker. A few possible resolutions:
Anyway, the minimum seems to be outlawry and a hefty fine on your relatives for not having done something about you earlier.
