Craig Presson observes:
: The law is full of strange loops like this, but this one can also be
: unravelled less strangely (and less entertainingly): "My client denies
: participating in the act in question, but even if the actual
: perpetrator were here on trial, the prosecution's case is tainted by
: entrapment."

Alternatively, "My client was entrapped into what s/he did -- which,
by the way, did not fulfill all the necessary elements of the charge."
