A: While the law enforcement behavior may constitute entrapment, the more important question is: does pursuing the entrapment defense provide you the best outcome for your case? There are a number of factors that go into assisting you in making that determination including, but not limited to: your previous criminal history, previous criminal history involving drugs, and the SPECIFIC statements made to you by law enforcement. An experienced public defender or criminal defense attorney will be useful in assisting you in selecting the best defense strategy.
