I think I am the victim of entrapment in my drug case. How do I prove it?

Entrapment is a possible defense in some drug cases, particularly those involving sales of drugs. To establish entrapment, the defendant must show that the law enforcement officer (or his or her agent, such as an informant) engaged in conduct that would cause a normally law-abiding person to commit the crime. Examples include badgering, persuasion by flattery, coaxing, repeated and insistent requests, or an appeal to friendship or sympathy. A successful entrapment defense is highly dependent on the facts, and a thorough analysis of the facts by a skilled drug crimes defense attorney is required.
