Criminal Law And Procedure -The Defense Of Entrapment

Michigan Law Review

A government agent, acting incognito, gained the confidence of the defendant by reminiscing over old war experiences. In the course of the conversation the agent repeatedly urged the defendant to secure for him a quantity of liquor. The defendant repeatedly refused, but finally acquiesced. Held, that there had been an entrapment, the court entering into a discussion of the theory of the defense. Sorrells v. United States, (U.S. 1932) 53 Sup. Ct. 210.
