    What are the Rules of Evidence pertaining to the following situation?

    Married individual turns over a computer to the police without a search warrant; however, that computer is password protected and owned by the spouse. Is this an illegal seizure of property making anything found on that computer inadmissible in a criminal court of law?

    Q: Is this an illegal seizure of property making anything found on that computer inadmissible in a criminal court of law?

    A: No; the cops had nothing to do with procuring the computer.
