CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE

CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE

Two commonly confused concepts in criminal law are reasonable suspicion and probable cause.

 

 

YOUR ASSIGNMENT IS TO:

 

Define and evaluate both of these significant legal terms reasonable suspicion and probable cause and utilize pertinent U.S. Supreme Court opinions to justify your answers.

 

 

Finally, address what happens to a criminal case when an officer does not possess reasonable suspicion or probable cause.

 

 

Your initial post should be at least 400 words in length.

 

Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
