Should the current framework that determines whether a person is entrapped by the police be replaced by an up-to-date framework?

You will find that there are two cases involved here. Both involve Toronto Police Drug Squad and both involve trafficking in cocaine. In the case of Mr Ahmad, he was found guilty and in the case of Mr. Williams the case was ‘stayed’ because the Supreme Court ruled that Mr Williams was entrapped. For this assignment we are going to focus on the decision made by the Supreme Court with respect to Mr. Williams.

Part A

After reading the court decision, I want you to tell me the arguments made on behalf of the Crown as to why the Crown says that Mr Williams was not entrapped (300 -500 words) and I want you to tell me why Mr Williams argues that he was entrapped (300- 500 words). Finally I want you to tell me what YOU think. Do you agree with the Supreme Court? If so, why and if not, why not? This is due on November 22 at midnight.

Part B

This part will be like an appellant court case. You will act as the crown or the defence attorney for Mr Williams.

For the purposes of this practical those who are advocating on behalf of the Appellant will be defending Langdon Williams and those on behalf of the Respondent will be defending the position of Her Majesty the Queen – the Crown. You have 4-5 minutes each to make your submission.

Here is your date and time, partner, as well as the role that you will play in the Moot court. The best way to proceed is to answer the following two questions. It would be best if one of you takes the first question and the other takes the 2nd question. If you have any questions we can take it up in class when we return from study week.

Questions:

1. Should the current framework that determines whether a person is entrapped by the police be replaced by an up-to-date framework?

2. Was Mr Williams entrapped?
