The appeals process in this case is notable, from the fact that the Florida state’s Appeals Court (Florida), overturned its trial court’s decision to how the Supreme Court eventually agreed with it and overturned the Appeals Court verdict. The trial court ruled that evidence gathered at the Jardines home should be destroyed because it was taken in violation of Fourth Amendment. However, the Florida Court of Appeals continued to argue that evidence can be used (Steinberg 2013, 2013). The Supreme Court of Florida affirmed the decision of the trial court. It was notable, however that the United States Supreme Court confirmed the Florida Supreme Court’s decision that Jardines had used a drug-sniffing animal to locate marijuana at their home.
It was interesting to note that Jardines was eventually released despite the existence of marijuana in his home and his Marijuana-selling activities. An indictment can be made if marijuana is found in possession of a person, no matter how the drug was obtained. However, in this situation, the search for a residence of someone without probable cause is more important than locating the person who was carrying the drug. The law of the land is now supreme. This is both an amazing and fascinating result. To produce evidence that is admissible in court, regardless of whether there is any evidence (Dery III), 2013, The law required that police and people be aware of their rights. This is because police tend to think they can ignore the law.
