Best Answer

A change of venue is granted when it is deemed that the defendant cannot receive a fair trial. That does not translate into the trial being moved to another state, it is moved to another jurisdiction,county, etc. The defendant must stand trial in the state in which the crime was committed. Even if the defendant is charged with a federal crime; the trial generally takes place in the federal court in the state where the crime was committed.

The person who lures into person into the crime must be involved for the crime to commit.Another View: (In US criminal law) A person is 'entrapped' when they are induced (i.e.: "egged on") or persuaded by law enforcement officers or their agents to commit a crime that they had no previous intent to commit.However, there is no entrapment when that person is ready and willing to break the law and the government agents merely provide what appears to be an opportunity for them to commit it.
