Supreme Court Case
Background: An Iowa policeman stopped petitioner Knowles for speeding and issued a citation rather than arresting him, and thoroughly searched the car. The search was against the 4th Amendment, since the policeman didn't have a warrant with him.
Decision and Rationale: The court decided the Iowa police man was guilty due to not having a warrant during the search, and everything confiscated in Knowles' car can'y be used for evidence because of that.
