Unit III Discussion Board Criminal Law

After reading the handout: “What Constitutes Entrapment by Government Agents?” answer the questions below:

  • Do you think that, in this case, “the Government overstepped the line between setting a trap for the ‘unwary innocent’ and the ‘unwary criminal’”? Why, or why not?
  • How does the U.S. Supreme Court define entrapment in this case? Do you agree with the definition? Why, or why not?
