Sex sting operations cast a wide net, and they often end up catching people who have never been in trouble with the law before. In many cases, the undercover officers entrap people who did not intend to commit a crime.

Entrapment may be a defense in your case. In New York, the entrapment defense may apply if you are induced or encouraged by a police officer (or someone acting in cooperation with law enforcement) to commit a crime you were not otherwise disposed to commit.

Other defenses may be available, but it is important not to say anything to police until your attorney has reviewed the state’s evidence. You may rule out certain defenses that would otherwise be available to you.
