Know Your Rights
The United States Constitution states that all citizens accused of any crime have certain rights, regardless of their guilt or innocence. If you are facing a criminal trial, you need to remember that you have legally protected rights to:
- Avoid arrest, search, or seizure without probable cause (4th Amendment)
- Never be tried twice for the same crime, nor incriminate yourself when testifying as a witness, nor face any punishments without due process of law (5th Amendment)
- A fair, speedy, and public trial; a chance to face your accusers and hear the charges being brought against you; a competent legal defense (6th Amendment)
- Remain safe from excessive bail, and cruel or unusual punishment (8th Amendment)
Depending on your circumstances, you may have additional rights and responsibilities granted by state and federal law.
Protect Your Legal Rights
Even in a democracy, people’s basic rights are sometimes overlooked or denied outright. Having a strong defense lawyer on your side can help you ensure fair treatment. It is vital to have an experienced attorney to inform you of your rights and how to protect them.
