Entrapment is defined as "The way an individual or group becomes drawn into a criminal act, such as through the use of enticement." This may be easier to define than it sounds, and is very important in defending yourself in a court of law.
The definition of entrapment differs from state to state, but is generally thought to cover situations in which an individual becomes entrapped into committing a crime, either by mistake or through a criminal enticement. Most commonly, an individual who is arrested for a crime that he did not commit may be found guilty if the police intentionally planted evidence that would place him in the wrong.
A criminal defense lawyer can help you determine whether or not there was any entrapment in your case. Entrapment law is a very broad area, so most law enforcement professionals have a lot of experience in defining and evaluating different circumstances. Criminal defense lawyers must often take a more involved approach to defending their clients because their goal is to win a fair trial, not an acquittal.
Many law enforcement officers will make the claim that they would never have chosen a specific person to arrest if they did not believe they were guilty. If a group of law enforcement officers all came together at a political rally and all declared they would arrest the person who did not belong there, would the outcome have been different? We have laws to prevent this, but most of them do not apply in these cases.
Entrapment law has been used to charge undercover police officers who falsely declare themselves for a fee while making false statements about a crime they are investigating. In many cases, these officers testify against their friends, because the police induced them to get involved. They have been found guilty and now find themselves facing the consequences of their actions.
Entrapment law has also been used to successfully defend law enforcement officers against accusations of planting evidence. In many instances, the officers testified to planting evidence in the suspects' homes, and were found innocent.
It is important for you to know that entrapment law does not apply to all arrests. Generally, law enforcement agencies will not be found guilty of entrapment unless they know that they will get you to commit a crime. The courts look at whether or not you were led to commit a crime, or if you were lured into committing one.
A knowledgeable lawyer can help you learn all about entrapment law, and how it applies to the situation at hand. You should be armed with this knowledge so that you can better protect yourself from criminals.
