SL Trib Covers Cassell’s Argument for Change in Utah’s Exclusionary Rule

On December 1, The Salt Lake Tribune reported on an argument Paul Cassell, a professor of law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law and former federal judge, made before the Utah Supreme Court challenging Utah’s independent exclusionary rule.

As reported by The Tribune, Cassell argued that the current rule “only gives rights to guilty criminals” and “suppresses reliable evidence … thus helping them escape punishment and re-victimize victims.”
