Entrapment Definition

In criminal law, entrapment is when a law enforcement officer or agent induces a person to commit a criminal offense that they would not have been predisposed to commit. If a private person induces the defendant to commit a crime, that is not entrapment. If the police legally entrap a person, they are not guilty of the charged offense.
