The 6TH Amendment

 

 

Anthony Ferraioli's insight:

     The 6th amendment provide the people the right to a speedy trial. This is to keep them from sitting in jail for 6 years or so before they get a trial and that would not be fair to the people that are innocent. This amendment also makes the people accuased have the right for a public trial so they can not question someone and private and abuse there rights.

Amendment 6 info

information
Anthony Ferraioli's insight:
The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution affords criminal defendants seven discrete personal liberties: (1) the right to a Speedy Trial; (2) the right to a public trial; (3) the right to an impartial jury; (4) the right to be informed of pending charges; (5) the right to confront and to cross-examine adverse witnesses; (6) the right to compel favorable witnesses to testify at trial through the subpoena power of the judiciary; and (7) the right to legal counsel. Ratified in 1791, the Sixth Amendment originally applied only to criminal actions brought by the federal government. Over the past century, all of the protections guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment have been made applicable to the state governments through the doctrine of selective incorporation. Under this doctrine, the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment require each state to recognize certain fundamental liberties that are enumerated in the Bill of Rights because such liberties are deemed essential to the concepts of freedom and equality. Together with the Supremacy Clause of Article VI, the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits any state from providing less protection for a right conferred by the Sixth Amendment than is provided under the federal Constitution. http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Sixth+Amendment
