Probable Cause

An objective standard of expectation of results that must be met to justify any search and seizure. The expectation must be grounded in facts and circumstances that would lead a reasonable person to that expectation. Search warrants are only issued upon finding of probable cause, and warrantless searches (such as during a traffic stop) must meet the standard of probable cause to be admissible in court.
