DE holds that exclusionary rule doesn’t apply to probation revocations

The exclusionary rule does not apply to probation revocation proceedings. No federal case holds to the contrary. Thompson v. State, 2018 Del. LEXIS 346 (July 24, 2018).

The city’s administrative warrants for petitioner’s dilapidated buildings were properly issued. By statute, administrative warrants are not governed by the same rules as search warrants. Therefore, petitioner’s reliance on criminal search cases fails. Levitt v. City of Oak Ridge, 2018 Tenn. App. LEXIS 410 (July 24, 2018).
