Sting Operations versus Entrapment


Entrapment is when law enforcement creates a situation that entices a person to commit a crime that would have otherwise been unlikely to commit. Conradt Terrell shot himself with a gun during a search warrant for soliciting sex from a over-18 aged police decoy who he thought was a 13 year old. No crime was ever committed other than the intent which Terrell never followed up with by going to the boy's house. Was he a person who may have been engaging in fantasy role playing with no intent to victimize children? Shouldn't a sting operation pass a threshold to capture intent?
