Illegal Search

The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution reads as follows:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.[1]

The Fourth Amendment was added to the Constitution to ensure our privacy by limiting the power that police have while performing an arrest, searching, and seizing evidence.
