THE CALIFORNIA SUPREME COURT SAID
No

"The trial court was required to instruct the second jury on the defense of entrapment if, but only if, substantial evidence supported the defense...  In California, the test for entrapment focuses on the police conduct and is objective.  Entrapment is established if the law enforcement conduct is likely to induce a normally law-abiding person to commit the offense." 

The California Appellate Court's opinion was published on January 20, 2000 as People v. Watson (2000) [22 Cal.4th 220]
