When Dollree Mapp was arrested on a felony charge for possession of obscene materials under the Ohio Revised Code in May, 1957, little was it known then that this case, initially concerning 1st Amendment Rights (freedom of speech), would end up in the Supreme Court as an examination of 14th Amendment rights concerning due process of law and equal protection.
