In the end, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled (6-3), in favor of Mapp, that the evidence collected is deemed unconstitutional. The Supreme Court stated the proof could not be used against the person in state courts and that Dollree Mapp could not be convicted.

A constitutional right: Carrying firearms on college campuses The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
