In order to prepare for this case study, you will need to review Chapter 13, Police and the Law in your textbook. Analyze and explain the use of the Exclusionary Rule by the Supreme Court of the United States. Define how the Exclusionary Rule has affected the use of evidence acquired from police search and seizure cases. Compare and contrast each of the following cases and the effects that the ruling decision by the Supreme Court has had on evidence obtained from police search and seizure. What constitutes a reasonable search? How is search and seizure governed by the
Fourth Amendment? How do you feel that the police could have completed their searches in these cases more efficiently?

Weeks v. United States (1914) Exclusionary rule applied to federal law enforcement agencies
Rochin v. California (1952) Exclusionary rule applied to all cases involving extreme police misconduct
Mapp v. Ohio (1961) Exclusionary rule applied to all law enforcement agencies (local, state, and federal)
