Entrapment?: OK, I confess that I have some sympathy for this clerk
Cardwell is hollering "Entrapment," "Draconian" and more.
Rather than pay, Cardwell says, he will take the alternative and close the store for a week. He says it doesn't make that much in a week in any case.
His clerk had been stung by an Oregon Liquor Control Commission decoy sent to test for underage sales.
His two clerks will be jobless until June 7.
Cardwell is not denying his employee erred, but says it was hardly fair.
"This young woman was dressed in very provocative clothing more suited for the bedroom," Cardwell said in a letter to the OLCC. "I would not allow my daughter to leave the house dressed in such a way." . . . .
