CHAPTER 10 DEFENSES RELATING TO CULPABILITY

Instruction No. 10.1700 Entrapment.

I.C. 35–41–3–9.


The defense of entrapment is an issue in this case.

In order to overcome this defense, the State must prove beyond a reasonable doubt:

1. that the prohibited conduct of the Defendant was not the product of [a law enforcement officer] [[a law enforcement officer’s agent] using persuasion or other means likely to cause the Defendant to engage in the conduct, or


2. that the Defendant was predisposed to commit the offense.

Conduct merely affording a person an opportunity to commit the offense does not constitute entrapment.
