What's The Point Of The Fifth Amendment?

By Brittany Antonacci June 12, 2020 0 comments

Hello Fellow Americans,

 

 

Today we’ll be continuing our in-depth series at a look into the constitution—primarily covering the Fifth Amendment. We’ll be giving a little background history as well as the purpose it holds today.

 

 

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

 

 

The Fifth Amendment states…

 

 

"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."

 

 

This amendment primarily deals with grand jury trials as they decide based on the circumstantial evidence at hand whether or not a trial will be held. These grand jury trials are only held in when people may be convicted of life in prison or the death penalty.

 

 


This basically provides protection from…

 

 

Double Jeopardy

 

 

 

 

 

This guarantees no one will be tried for the same crime twice—unless they feel they have circumstantial evidence to re-open the case.

 

 

 

 

 

Incriminating Speech

 

 

 

 

 

When someone is being tried for any level of crime they have the ability to plead the fifth, meaning they do not have to speak if they feel the information they might give can incriminate themselves.

 

 

 

 

 

Due Process

 

 

 

 

 

This process guarantees anyone being charged with a crime will have a fair trial that follows a specific procedure through the judiciary system.

 

 

Let us know if you have any additional questions on this amendment and we’ll be happy to answer them in the comments.

 

 

 

 

 

See You Later Patriot!!!
