The exclusionary rule is perhaps one of the most controversial principles that has ever originated out of the Supreme Court. In 1914, the Supreme Court created and applied the exclusionary rule to the federal government in Weeks v. U.S. Epstein and Walker (1995) define the exclusionary rule as “a principle of law that illegally gathered evidence may not be admitted in court” (Epstein and Walker, p. 871).
