The most important rebuttal against a defendant’s accusation of entrapment, especially when government agents have, over time and through multiple meetings, provided the means and methods of the charged crime, is the first conversation with the accused. As long as the defendant willfully expresses in his first conversation with government agents his clear intent to commit the crime that is later developed with their assistance, the agents are usually secure in their statements that they did not entrapment an otherwise innocent person with no intent to commit the eventual crime.
