United States v. Williams, 622 F.2d 830 (5th Cir. 1980), cert. denied, 101 S. Ct. 946 (1981).
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, in United States v. Williams, strictly limited the scope of the exclusionary rule in criminal proceedings by announcing acceptance of the good faith exception. … The interest in the purposes of the exclusionary rule is more than pedagogical concern. The courts’ perception of the purposes of the rule will determine its future scope and application. The Williams court used the sole purpose of deterrence as established in Calandra and subsequent cases for the basis of its decision. Consequently, the Fifth Circuit has severely restricted the scope and application of the exclusionary rule.
