Question 16

Lawrence decides to have a few friends over for a cookout. While he is outside flipping burgers on the grill, one of his guests goes inside Lawrence's house and starts looking through the files on his computer without Lawrence's permission. He finds pornographic pictures that Lawrence has made of some of the neighborhood kids. Although he is not affiliated with law enforcement in any way, the guest feels it is his civic duty to copy the files onto a disc and turn them over to the police. Lawrence is arrested. Lawrence tells his lawyer that his Fourth Amendment rights have been violated because the search and seizure was unreasonable. This argument is:

A. Not valid. Since computer evidence can be destroyed easily and quickly, exigent circumstances dictated that no warrant was necessary.

B. Valid because there was no probable cause for the guest to have searched the computer prior to his doing so. Any evidence found must be excluded.

C. Valid because a warrant was necessary to seize the files.

D. Not valid because no Fourth Amendment protection exists for searches conducted by someone acting independently absent direction from the government.

Question 17

A. The person giving the consent must have the proper authority over the area to be searched and is legally capable of granting such access.

B. It can be shown that a magistrate or judge was unavailable.

C. It can be shown that those conducting the search checked with the U.S. Attorney's office before proceeding.

D. The person giving the consent must be advised beforehand that any evidence seized can be used in a court of law against him and that he has the right to an attorney before the search takes place.

Question 18

The police obtain a search warrant to go to Harry's house and look for stolen computers. They serve the warrant and, once inside, begin their search. While on the scene, one of the officers sees a bag of marijuana in plain view on Harry's coffee table. He immediately knows it is marijuana, based on his 10 years of experience as a drug officer. The evidence is seized, and Harry is charged with possession of marijuana. Was the seizure of the marijuana valid under the Fourth Amendment?

A. Absolutely not. The Fourth Amendment requires that the object of the search be described with particularity. Since the police had no probable cause to search for drugs, and it wasn't mentioned in the warrant, they exceeded the bounds of the warrant, and the exclusionary rule will require that the evidence be thrown out.

B. Absolutely. The police were acting in a lawful manner by being in the house to serve a search warrant. Since they were legally on the scene, anything in plain view which is obviously evidence of any crime can be seized and will be admissible in Harry's trial.

C. Absolutely not. Unless the officer who seized it is a drug identification expert and tested the material, there is no way that the officer can know for certain that the item was in fact marijuana. The motion to suppress this evidence will be granted by the judge.

D. Absolutely. Marijuana is contraband, and it is illegal to possess it. As such, there are no Fourth Amendment protections. Regardless of whether the police were in an area where they were legally entitled to be or not, this evidence can be seized and will be admissible in court at Harry's trial.

Question 19

A computer crime investigator looks for suspected child molesters by going to a live chat room on the Internet. She does not identify herself as a police officer. In fact, she does not say anything at all but remains silent in the chat room. If she is able to obtain enough evidence to use against a molester to build a case against him, what will most courts likely say about her methods? (Assume for the purposes of this question that the court in question is not the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.)

A. Most courts will likely say that a wiretap was required prior to obtaining any evidence.

B. Most courts will likely say that the molester had a reasonable expectation of privacy since the officer did not say anything and the molester did not know she was there. Therefore, any evidence collected will be excluded.

C. Most courts will likely say that no warrant was required. Since the officer could read the offending words on her screen, they are considered to be in "plain view" and are thus exempt from the warrant requirement of the Fourth Amendment.

D. Most courts will likely say that there is no expectation of privacy in an Internet chat room since others are likely to visit there. Therefore, no warrant is necessary.
