Evidence Edit

The independent source exception to the exclusionary rule was created by the U.S. Supreme Court in Segura v United States.[1] Under this exception, if evidence is seized in two different ways, one of them being illegal, but the second seizure of the same evidence being legal, that evidence will not be excluded from admission at trial.
