what is a terry stop

An officer may stop and frisk for weapons.

Terry v. Ohio (1968)

  • Facts of the case
    • Cop sees 3 men “casing” a store. Cop is suspicious.
    • Cop stops them and frisks them, finds guns.
    • Defendants’ lawyer asks the court to “suppress” (ignore) the evidence, since it was obtained without probable cause
  • Constitutional Question
    • “Was it proper to admit the guns as evidence, or did their admission violation the defendants’ constitutional rights under the 4th Amendment?”
  • Judicial Decision
    • SC decided search was reasonable. Searching the men was warranted, and necessary to keep the officer safe.
    • Created a standard of “reasonable suspicion”

What the defendants were hoping for

Terry (the defendant) wanted to the evidence (the guns found by the cop) to be excluded because the officer found the guns using what he felt was an illegal search.

If the evidence was excluded, it would be inadmissible.

NEW VOCABULARY

Inadmissible – evidence that the jury must ignore

Exclusionary Rule – a legal rule that says any evidence seized illegally by the police must be excluded from trial
