No Entrapment Here

Today the First Circuit decided United States v. Villafañe-Jiménez, No. 03-1230 (1st Cir. June 7, 2005) dealing with an appeal from one of the trials in the "Lost Honor" investigation. As expected, defendants lost on all the important issues to their appeals. I wrote about the "Lost Honor" investigation and prosecutions over at The Best Defense some time back. See When defendants think they know more than the lawyers. While I am not handling the appeal for the client I represented at trial, it all looks too familiar and the result would surprise me if it was any different.
