A Reasonable Mistake?

CONSTITUTION THURSDAY

The Saturday Podcast



brotA man is stopped for a broken taillight in a place where it is not illegal to have a broken taillight… from there things go down hill… fast.

What happens when a Police Officer makes a “reasonable error” in enforcing a law that doesn’t actually exist as the basis for a search and seizure?

And should the results of that search and seizure be admissible in Court?
