Entrapment

Entrapment is a legal defense.

 

There are TWO forms of entrapment:

 

1.    Objective Entrapment focuses on the conduct of law enforcement. It is a bar to prosecution when the government’s conduct is so egregious and so offends decency or a sense of justice, that it amounts to a denial of due process. (Examples: police offering sex in return for drugs or police cooking up crack in a police laboratory then selling it).

 

2.    Subjective Entrapment focuses on an apparent lack of predisposition on the part of the defendant: when the police (or a police agent) present a criminal opportunity to a person who is not looking for it.

 

If there is no police involvement entrapment is not a defense.

My experience with Mr. Behr and his staff was nothing short of phenomenal. I hope to not ever need representation again. But In the case I do. J would absolutely use Mr. Behr. I would also fully recommend him to anyone I know in need of representation.

When I travel throughout the world for business I can honestly say that I feel extremely comfortable knowing I can pick up the phone for guidance and know Mr. Behr will consistently have my back with a positive answer on the other end. I attribute my success with my business by having this honorable man on my team. Thomas

He filed motion after motion until the judge finally dismissed my case. He even took it to another judge. The guy never stopped and let nothing stop him. He was all over the prosecutor and knew more law than the judge, it was super cool to watch the man work. He is the best lawyer in the county. Jose
