Exclusionary rule DB 5.docx - The Exclusionary Rule says...

This preview shows page 1 out of 2 pages.

The Exclusionary Rule says that any evidence collected from a suspect that violates that suspects constitutional right can sometime be inadmissible in court (Exclusionary Rule 2017). The exclusionary rule protects suspects from unfair law enforcement evidence collections methods such as search and seizures with a warrant or nonconsensual body searches or searches of your vehicle. There are exceptions to this rule. For example the good faith rule which says in summary that if law enforcement is acting on a warrant and that warrant or part of that warrant turns out to be faulty in some way then any evidence that is collected on that warrant can still be admissible in court because officers acted in good faith of a warrant. Another exception is the independence source doctrine which states that evidence collected during an illegal search and seizure can still be admissible in court if it is later obtain with a constitutional valid search and seizure (Exclusionary Rule 2017).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
