Terry v. Ohio (1968)

The court ruled that stop-and-frisk policies do not violate the Constitution under certain circumstances. Police believed John W. Terry and others were going to rob a store. The officer stopped and frisked the men. A weapon was found on Terry and he was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon. The Supreme Court ruled that this search was reasonable. Louis Stokes (above) was the attorney in the case.
