Many of the trials in the reading of the text have made significant differences in police
procedures. They also show extremely important decisions made by the courts when police did
not follow procedures according to the letter of the law. The three cases I found to have
significant importances are the Exclusionary Rule: Judge Kennedy-Powell’s Ruling on the
Admissibility of Evidence in the O.J. Simpson Case, Weeks v. United States, and Delaware v.
Prouse.
Judge Kennedy-Powell’s Ruling on the Admissibility of Evidence in the O.J. Simpson Case
In this court case I believe the decision was important even though O.J. was not
convicted of the crime. Because of the circumstances in this case the police had reasons to
believe their where problems within the residence. After the murder of O.J.’s wife, the police
proceeded to the Simpson’s residence where on the street O.J.’s bronco was found with blood on
the door, drops of blood, which lead to the house, and blood in the driveway of the house. This is
clearly enough evidence to support probable cause and a good decision by the judge to allow the
evidence.
Weeks v. United States
Second, is the case of Weeks v. United States. This case was important in my opinion
because the subject was convicted by the court due to evidence that was obtained illegally by the
U.S. Marshals. The case was overturned by the Supreme courts based on the facts in which all
the searches where without a warrant.
Delaware v. Prouse
