881 F.2d 402 (1989)

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Alvaro LAZCANO, a/k/a Jose A. Lazcano, Defendant-Appellant.

United States Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit.

Decided August 2, 1989.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Stephanie Uhlarik, David J. Stetler, Asst. U.S. Attys., Criminal Receiving, Appellate Div., Chicago, Ill., for plaintiff-appellee.

Clarence L. Burch, David Delgado, Burch & Delgado, Chicago, Ill., for defendant-appellant.

Before CUDAHY, POSNER, and RIPPLE, Circuit Judges.

RIPPLE, Circuit Judge.

Alvaro Lazcano appeals a jury verdict convicting him on two counts of knowingly distributing heroin in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1). He submits that the conviction should be reversed because (1) he was entrapped as a matter of law, and (2) the district court committed reversible error in admitting into evidence a statement made by a person not present at trial. We now affirm the defendant's conviction.
