Practice and Procedure

R v JAMES JONES (2010)

PUBLISHED April 29, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 925

A defendant had not been trapped into committing an offence of incitement to produce cannabis where an undercover police officer was persistent in his approach to obtaining the necessary evidence and the context of the officer's behaviour was that his enquiries would only have been made by a lay person who was prepared to break the law.
