Searches and Seizures with a Warrant: Issuance of the Warrant 2

This lesson, part two of three lessons on searches and seizures with a warrant, addresses application of the rules for issuance of warrants. A first lesson, "Searches and Seizures with a Warrant: Issuance of the Warrant 1," involves basic principles about warrants, who can issue them, the "preference" for warrants, and concepts of probable cause, particularity and nexus. This lesson includes a detailed example of an application for a search warrant and the search warrant issued based on this application. These provide opportunities to identify potential shortcomings in both documents. The third lesson, "Searches and Seizures with a Warrant: Execution of the Warrant," covers what happens once the police obtain a warrant.
