Law enforcement officials must follow certain rules since protection from unlawful searches and seizures is a right guaranteed in the United States Constitution. If it is discovered that a search was not executed properly, any items discovered during that search may not be admissible in court. A District Court of Appeals in Ohio recently reiterated this constitutional protection by overturning a possession of prescription narcotics conviction.
