W/O “exigent circumstances”, police cannot enter a private home to make an arrest payton v. NY (1980). Entry into private home is extreme intrusion, an entry to make an arrest is nearly an intrusive as an entry for a search Major consequence of invalid arrest is often evidence taken during arrest will not be admissible against defendant. Warrantless arrests are by far more common No arrest warrant is required as long as suspect isn’t arrested in his/her home Police MUST still have PC to arrest with or without a warrant Exception: there is no arrest warrant needed to go into a private home when police are in ‘hot pursuit” or “exigent circumstances” exist Types of Warrantless Searches Search incident to arrest Inventory Search Exigent Circumstances Plain View Automobile searches Consent Searches Stop & Frisk Regulatory inspection (i.e. airport/border searches) Exclusionary Rule Judge made rule doctrine that provides that evidence obtained in violation of a defendant’s constitutional rights Rational behind ER Courts have 2 primary reasons for refusing to admit evidence obtained in violation of a defendant’s rights o Deterrence: Exclusion of evidence will deter police from violating constitutional rights Fairness: the integrity of the judicial system requires courts not be made “party to the unlawful invasions of constitutional rights of citizens by permitting unhindered governmental use of the fruits of such invasions” U.S. v Leon (1984) held that the ER wasn’t constitutionally required but was judicially created as a deterrent to constitutional violations by police. There was no mention of judicial integrity as another rationale. In recent history, the number of situations where the ER has been applied has steadily decreased Standing to assert the ER As a general rule, a defendant may only assert the ER to bar evidence obtained through a violation of his/her own constitutional rights, not evidence obtained through a violation of rights of a third party.

The statement may still be introduced into evidence against B

    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.
