Good Faith Exception & The Exclusionary Rule 2Within the criminal justice system many rules, protocols, and procedures can be found. These are all in place in order to ensure that no citizens rights are infringed upon. One of the many rules is the Exclusionary Rule, this rule was created so that the government could not be able to utilize evidence in court that was gained illegally. In other terms it makes sure that the government cannot use any evidence that was found or gathered by violating any rights found under the United States Constitution. An example of such evidence would be any evidence that isfound from conducting an illegal and unconstitutional search and seizure because of the lack of awarrant. This rule was creating in order to protect a criminal defendants Fourth Amendment rights (Cornell Law, n.d.). This means that any evidence that was gained and gathered from an illegal search and seizure is considered excluded from the trial, based solely on the fact that the evidence against the individual was gathered illegally. Its important to note that the ExclusionaryRule was a court-made rule, meaning that it was created by the United States Supreme Court.
