Evidence Edit

The inevitable discovery exception to the exclusionary rule was created by the U.S. Supreme Court in Nix v. Williams,[1] Under the exception, if evidence is secured by illegal means, but the same evidence would inevitably have been discovered legally in the future, then that illegally seized evidence will not be excluded.
