The Bill of Rights consists of 10 amendments to the US Constitution, which catalog fundamental individual rights held by all Americans.
The 4th amendment of the Bill of Rights guarantees freedom from and protection from unreasonable search and seizure.
This amendment guarantees 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.
This 4th amendment to the Bill of Rights specifically addresses what may used as evidence, by law-enforcement officials and court officials, to prosecute an individual for certain crimes.
This amendment speaks to, evidence taken by law-enforcement officials. Often times evidence seized by law-enforcement cannot be used to prosecute an individual, because it was seized inappropriately.
