Exceptions

The Exceptions are A person or thing that is excluded from a general statement or does not follow a rule.

The Police May Not Do: Warrantless search: The police may not conduct a search anywhere you have a reasonable expectation of privacy unless, one of the exceptions applies. Use illegally obtained evidence: This is what is known as the “exclusionary rule.” If evidence was obtained by way of an illegal search, that evidence cannot be used against you at trial. Use illegally obtained evidence to find other evidence. Conduct a random search of your person: The police must have a reasonable suspicion that you are involved in criminal activity in order to “stop and frisk” you. If reasonable suspicion exists, they may pat down your outer clothing if they are concerned that you may be concealing a weapon. Conduct a random search of your vehicle: The police must have a reasonable suspicion that your car contains evidence of a crime, stolen goods and/or illegal items in order to search it. The Police MAY Do: Conduct a search with a valid warrant: In order to obtain a valid search warrant from a judge, the police must establish “credible cause” for the search. This means that they must show that it is more likely than not that a crime has occurred and, if a search is conducted, it is probable that they will find evidence of the crime. The police must specify the area(s) to be searched and the items they are looking for in their application for the warrant. Once a valid warrant is obtained, the police may enter the specified location(s) and conduct a search for the items. “Legitimate expectation of privacy”: The police may conduct a search and seize items of evidence when there is no “legitimate expectation of privacy.” For example, if you leave an illegal firearm on the hood of your car and the police drive by and see it, they may stop and seize the illegal firearm. You do not have a

“legitimate expectation of privacy on the hood of your car or the things you leave on top of it. In this situation, it is as if no search has occurred. Consent: If the police ask for your permission to search, and you give it to them, the police may conduct a search of the area(s) to which you consented. The police do not need a warrant in this situation. Search “incident” to a valid arrest: The police have the authority search you and your immediate surroundings, “incident” to the arrest. For example, if the police stop and arrest you while you were driving, they ordinarily have the authority to search you and the entire passenger compartment the car. Inventory search: If you are arrested and taken to jail, the police do not need a warrant to search any items you have with you. For example, if the police impound your car, they are allowed to conduct and “inventory search” of your car and make a list of the items in it. Public safety: The police do not need a warrant to search if they reasonably fear for their safety or the public’s safety. For example, if the police drive by your house and see you in the garage making bombs out of explosives, they can conduct a search. Imminent destruction of evidence: The police do not need a warrant to search if the reasonably believe that evidence will be destroyed. For example, if the police see you running into a house with a bag of cocaine, the police may enter and search on the reasonable belief that you are going to flush the cocaine down the toilet. Hot pursuit: The police may search without a warrant if they are in “hot pursuit.” For example, if the police are chasing you from the scene of a bank robbery and you run into your house, they can enter the house and search for you.
