Sting operation, underage drinking

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United Kingdom
State: All States/Provinces

I was serving behind a bar it was a quite night theses to girls walked in and order two drinks, then they paid for them and then two men walked in and then a police man. They were under age, should they be allowed to send people of 15 into a pub? and pay for them? My locals say it was entrapment?

Answer

The police unfortunately have generally prevailed in court on that tactic...
