Where a defendant argued that his conviction for drug distribution was not supported by sufficient evidence because he was unlawfully entrapped when a friend who was cooperating with officers contacted him regarding drug transactions, the defendant did not show that he was induced to engage in the illegal conduct or that he was unwilling to participate in the conduct, and the state rebutted the entrapment allegation by showing that the defendant was predisposed to engage in the transaction and knowledgeable about the drug trade in his area.
Judgment is affirmed.
