Scaros (2011) describes the Katz case where such a violation did occur. In the case, Katz, who was the petitioner, did not know that the FBI had fixed an eavesdropping device on the telephone booth he used that documented his conversations.

Jack Jones was the inmate accused of murder while Joe Johnson should be charged for violating Maryland’s Controlled Dangerous Substances Act if found to be in possession of contraband cigarette.As of the time of the search, only cigarette papers were found.
It may have been for purposes of humanitarian reason that prisoners were given the benefit of doubt. Under the 4th Amendment, according to Maclin, T. (1993, p. 197), the US Constitution guarantees the right of every citizen “to be free from unreasonable government searches”.
The question remained; did the school snatch the right to have religious liberty from students by enforcing public prayer? Engel parents definitely believed so as they argued that there should be a separation of state and church based on the first amendment. The State of New York believed that it did not establish a religion.
