The Fifth Amendment protects you in any legal proceeding from saying anything that may be used to incriminate you in a criminal prosecution. It gives you the right to not be tried for the same crime twice. It also gives you the right to due process and the right to fair compensation for private property that is taken for public use. Under the Fifth Amendment, you are also guaranteed the right no to incriminate yourself in criminal cases. In other words, this amendment protects your right to remain silent.

This is basically, an overveview of the Fifth Amendment. There are also such things as grand juries. There are a holdover from hundreds of years ago originating during Britains early history. Deeply-Rooted from the Anglo-American tradition, the grand jury originally served to protect the accused from the over-Zealous prosecutions from the english monarchy.
