Consent to a Search and Seizure by a Member of the Suspect's Family: A Survey of the Problems
Constitutional provisions, statutes and common law rules of criminal procedure, desigmed to protect an individual's privacy and security, require that most searches and seizures in the Anglo-American system of jurisprudence be conducted pursuant to a warrant. The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, now applicable to the states, Mapp v. Ohio, ex- plicitly limits searches and seizures and outlaws the broad, general warrants and writs of assistance of the eighteenth century.
