Officer Bobby conducts an illegal search of Joe’s home and finds crack cocaine in his mother’s room. He also finds a little black book containing the names of townspeople who have given her money or drugs in exchange for sex. Based on this information, Officer Bob leaves the house and arrests Bill Jones who was named in the book, for soliciting prostitution. Joe had known about his mother’s business and had been photocopying the pages in the little black book. Later that day, Joe drives to the station and gives Officer Bob his photocopies. Soon thereafter, Joe is killed by an unknown person in retribution for his act. A. Is the list of names excluded as evidence because of the illegal search? B. What if Joe’s mother was being sued for illegal activity rather than Bill Jones?
