Often times a viable defense to a criminal charge is for the defense to move the court to suppress evidence and/or statements based on a violation of the constitutional rights of the accused. In a motion to suppress, the defense argues that the search leading to the discovery of the evidence or statements linking the accused to the alleged crime was illegal. If the search is illegal, then the evidence and/or statements obtained during the search are inadmissible at trial. This process ensures that proper evidence and statement gathering procedures are followed by law enforcement. Further, it ensures that incredible or tainted evidence is not used to impute guilt upon the accused. Additionally, criminal allegations that garner media interest pose a different set of concerns for the accused. The public sentiment regarding the accused may be tainted by the media’s presentation of information whose accuracy and reliability have been unchallenged. Basically, the livelihood and social interactions of the accused may be affected adversely if only one side of the story is disseminated by the media.
