The exclusionary rule is grounded in the Fourth Amendment and it is intended to protect citizens from illegal searches and seizures." The exclusionary rule is also designed to provide a remedy and disincentive, which is short of criminal prosecution in response to prosecutors and police who illegally gather evidence in violation of the Fifth Amendment in the Bill of Rights compelled to self-incrimination. The exclusionary rule also applies to violations of the Sixth Amendment, which guarantees the right to counsel.

What is an exception to the exclusionary rule?

The exclusionary rule applies to the evidence allowable in a criminal case. One exception is the "good faith exception" established by the US Supreme Court case, United States v. Leon. This exception provides that in some cases evidence discovered in an otherwise illegal search may be used at trial rather than excluded, provided the search had been made in good faith. This means that if the police honestly believed that the search was legal (even though on further review of the facts it was not), the evidence obtained will not be excluded. This applies to officers' objective, good-faith reliance on a warrant, later found to be defective, issued by a detached and neutral magistrate. (See below link)

What constitutional issue was interpreted in Terry v. Ohio?

Terry v. Ohio, 392 US 1 (1968)The Fourth Amendment, specifically the Search and Seizure Clause and the Fourteenth Amendment. Terry's attorney attempted to have the "stop and frisk" technique labeled an unreasonable search and seizure in order to have any evidence discovered during the search suppressed under the Exclusionary Rule.The case also raised the question of whether the petitioner's Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizure was made applicable to the States by the Fourteenth Amendment.The US Supreme Court found the "stop and frisk" technique constitutional when a "reasonably prudent officer" has concerns for his or others' safety. As a result, evidence produced from the search may be used against the defendant in court.For more information, see Related Questions, below.
