Notes of Decisions

   The defense of entrapment is available in proceedings before administrative agencies as well as in judicial proceedings, where a jockey’s license revocation was based on his dealings with another jockey who was being motivated and manipulated by the investigating officers so as to persuade or induce, the revocation must be reversed.
