The paper covers many famous court case which deal with the exclusionary rule and how they relate to the fourth and fifth amendments in the Constitution. The exclusionary rule applies to the waiver of production of evidence that may incriminate someone. If the evidence is regarding defrauding, this evidence is excluded from this rule.

From the Paper:

"Injustices occur every day in the eyes of citizens that are law abiding. The due process clause of the Constitution sometimes allows people who have committed crimes to be freed based on technicalities. These technicalities can also usually be called mistakes on the part of criminal justice personnel. Someone who has dedicated his or her life to protecting truth and justice made a mistake, knowingly or unknowingly and thus society pays the price. Allowing a criminal to go free never seems to be the just thing to do. However, considering it was a provision of the Constitution it is the right thing to do purely based on the fact the Constitution was created to protect the rights of citizens, good or bad."
