After hearing several complaints from citizens about a suspected drug dealer in their neighborhood, the local police department began to place additional officers on the streets. While walking the beat one afternoon, two high school teachers approached the officers and informed them that they saw a student's cell phone text describing a drug deal that was to take place around the corner. The officers immediately ran to the area and located an adolescent with a cell phone who fit the description presented by the teachers. The officers approached the adolescent and inquired about the potential drug deal, which the adolescent denied. Without a search warrant, the officers searched the adolescent's clothing and discovered several bags of cocaine. The adolescent was arrested and sent to trial. According to case precedent involving the 4th Amendment, what would happen to the drug evidence submitted at trial?

    As far as I know, Amendment 4 does not allow police officers to search people without warrant. But in this case, as police officers have recovered the drug evidence, they will submit this evidence in the court for trial; then accused will be trialed on the basis of evidence recovered from him. But as the boy falls in the adolescent, means between 10 to 19 years, he might not be given hard sentence. Otherwise the sentence for drug dealing is usually the life imprisonment or the death sentence if the drug exceeds a specific quantity. So this young boy might not be sentenced with death penalty or life imprisonment, He might be fined heavily.
