    Answered . There is only one thing you can and should do and that is to hire him a good criminal defense attorney. Depending on the exact words used and the procedure that went down he may have a strong argument. It all depends. He needs a good criminal defense attorney asap or a long prison term is in his future.

    Answered . Get your brother a good attorney. It sounds like he may have a case for entrapment if she was the one who initiated things, but he will need competent legal counsel to make the argument.

    Answered . Your brother may have a strong entrapment defense. Consult with some local attorneys (most offer free consultations) and get a better answer that way.
