Annotation 1 - Seventh Amendment

Annotation 1 - Seventh Amendment | 7th amendment | Scoop.it
  TRIAL BY JURY IN CIVIL CASES  The Right and the Characteristics of the Civil Jury  History.--On September 12, 1787, as the Convention was in its
emily speranza's insight:

This amendment was created on September 12, 1787. Ever since then, it has helped people get out of unfair arrests. This can be a good and bad thing. It is a good thing, because people have the right to court, which means they may have a chance to save themselves from jail. This can also be a bad thing because they may be found not guilty during court, even though they are guilty.

Stepmom convicted in death of boy, 10, who was deprived of water

Stepmom convicted in death of boy, 10, who was deprived of water | 7th amendment | Scoop.it
 

A Dallas jury will return Tuesday to continue deliberations in the sentencing phase of the trial of Tina Marie Alberson for the dehydration death of her stepson.
emily speranza's insight:

A boys stepmom deprived him of water, causing him to die. This was a form of punishment for him acting up. During court, prosecoturs wanted her in jail for life, but the defense wanted her sentenced in jail for 5 years. The jury is still yet to make a decision about her jail sentence. I think she deserves life in prison.

emily speranza's insight:

This video shows the 7th amendment in action. This video is about a man that recieves a speeding ticket, and is able to go to court to try to back up his story. This is possible because the 7th amendment allows you to have the right to a court case. However, he does not back up his story well enough, and still recieves the ticket, Having the right to a court case is a good thing, because then you do not automatically recieve a ticket without having any say about it.

7th Amendment

7th Amendment | 7th amendment | Scoop.it
The 7th Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees the right to trial by jury in civil cases, learn about this important right with Revolutionary War and Beyond.
emily speranza's insight:

The 7th amendment was included in the bill of rights. The purpose of this is so that you can have a jury trail in court. This was originally made because the American colonists had a period of not being allowed to have jury trials because of the British government. This was a way to protect them of unfair laws. This way, you are not automatically guilty.
