Your Fifth Amendment Rights
Know Your Fifth Amendment Rights
The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights and protects against unfair treatment in legal processes.
Your Fifth Amendment rights require that felonies be tried only upon indictment by a grand jury; the Grand Jury Clause is one of the few provisions of the Bill of Rights not held to have been incorporated to the states, most of which have replaced grand juries. The Amendment also provides many trial protections, including the right against self-incrimination (held to also apply to custodial interrogations and before most government bodies) as well as the right to be tried only once (“double jeopardy”) in federal court for the same offense. Your Fifth Amendment rights also have a Due Process Clause as well as an implied equal protection requirement. Finally, the Amendment requires that the power of eminent domain be coupled with “just compensation” for those whose property is taken.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
