As we have seen on many occasions, it is not uncommon for the police to overstep their authority and violate an individual's rights.
When law enforcement crosses the line, the legal defense of entrapment can provide the accused the legal means to fight back and beat the charges.
In Michigan, entrapment occurs when the police engage in impermissible conduct that would induce a law-abiding individual under similar circumstances to commit the crime, or the police engage in conduct so reprehensible that it cannot be tolerated by the court.
As a result, the police regularly monitor chat rooms and impersonate other people in chat rooms and on instant messenger programs.
In these elaborate sting operations, undercover officers work to build a case against someone for a felony offense like sexual solicitation of a minor. During the initial consultation, you can talk with an attorney about the charges pending against you, the potential penalties, and important defenses to these serious charges.
