Presumption of Innocence

The cornerstone of a democratic legal system is the presumption of innocence (the principle that the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty). The presumption of innocence is a due process right under the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution. If the state is unable to meet the burden of proof, the accused should be found not guilty. The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, and 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.

 

Exclusionary Rule

The exclusionary rule excludes evidence gathered in violation of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution from being admissible in criminal court. The primary purpose of the exclusionary rule is to deter law enforcement from infringing on the constitutional rights of individual citizens. In the landmark decision Mapp vs. Ohio 367 U.S. 643 (1961), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the exclusionary rule applies not only to the federal government but also to the state governments. The fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine expands the exclusionary rule to exclude evidence lawfully from being admissible in criminal court if it was discovered from information or evidence gathered from a previous illegal search and seizure.
