A law enforcement officer perpetrates an entrapment if he induces or encourages another person to engage in conduct constituting an offense by knowingly making false representations designed to induce the belief that such conduct is not prohibited, or if he employs methods of persuasion which create a substantial risk that an offense will be committed by a person who would not otherwise be ready to commit it. This defense is not available when the offense involves bodily injury or the threat of bodily injury to a person other than the officer perpetrating the entrapment.
