The case of John Nuttall and Amanda Korody is entering its second stage after jurors returned with guilty verdicts on Tuesday. Defence lawyers say a couple found guilty of plotting to blow up the B-C legislature would never have carried out their plan without the help of police. Now a judge has to decide whether the pair were entrapped by the RCMP. Simon Fraser University criminology professor Joan Brockman says it makes sense to argue entrapment only after the accused are found guilty. (Nuttall and Korody's defence lawyers are expected to call senior RCMP officers involved in the undercover police sting to testify.)

Transcript Prediction: << would be very difficult to do it in reverse because the trial judge needs the evidence before they can decide on entrapment so you can't slide for example hold an entire trial on entrapment and then decide that it's not in traffic I mean you know that would be putting the cart before the horse >>
