What Are Some Examples of Police Entrapment?

Police entrapment defenses can arise in virtually all crimes. However, the issue often involves drug crimes and sex crimes, including solicitation of prostitution and traveling to meet a minor. Law enforcement can use various tactics to coerce, trick or persuade an individual into committing a crime.

The Bigney Law Firm will determine if any of the following existed before or during the commission of the crime:

  • Pressure: Were you pressured into committing the crime? For example, were you pressured into getting drugs for a friend who was working with law enforcement as an informant?
  • Harassment or threats: Were you harassed or threatened into committing the crime? For example, were you told that if you did not do it, you would face consequences such as being arrested or beat up?
  • Fraud: Did fraud play a role in your commission of the crime? For example, was it suggested to you that what you were going to do was legal?

If it can be proven that a police officer or other law enforcement authority used unlawful tactics to get you to commit a crime, the charges against you can be dropped.
