Drug officers, Robert McDonnell and Richard Cujdik, have been demoted to desk positions in the wake of accusations of police misconduct in Philadelphia. The officers are accused of lying to get search warrants and in cases where they didn’t get a warrant, searching cars anyway.
If it is found that these two police officers did lie to get search warrants, any illegal items (drugs) found in the illegal searches would be suppressed because it is the “fruit” of an unlawful search. The same results apply to searches conducted without a warrant.
