As a criminal lawyer who deals with driving issues, I get a lot of calls from clients who feel that they are victims of police entrapment. Many people seem to have a misconception, which I believe is informed by American television, about the concept of entrapment. The understanding appears to be that entrapment exists where the police provide an opportunity to commit a crime. But the actual law on entrapment is not that simple.
In this blog post I am going to try to explain the issues that arise in entrapment cases, and why common driving issues called "entrapment" are not, in fact, entrapment.
