Michigan Entrapment Test

In Michigan, entrapment is analyzed according to a two-pronged test, with entrapment existing if either prong is met. The court must consider whether: (1) the police engaged in impermissible conduct that would induce a law-abiding person to commit a crime in similar circumstances, or; (2) the police engaged in conduct so reprehensible that it cannot be tolerated. Entrapment will not be found where the police do nothing more than present the defendant with an opportunity to commit the crime of which he is convicted. People v. Ealy, 222 Mich App 508, 510; 564 NW2d 168 (1997).
