Entrapment is a defense available to defendants as a remedy for over-zealous prosecutions. The defense is defined slightly differently in Kansas and Missouri. In Missouri, entrapment is defined in R.SMo Section 562.066:
1. The commission of acts which would otherwise constitute an offense is not criminal if the actor engaged in the prescribed conduct because he was entrapped by a law enforcement officer or a person acting in cooperation with such an officer.
