No double Jeopardy

No one person can be as they say harrased as being taken to trial for something they were proven innocent to.Eliminates Judicial Discretion to Impose Multiple Punishments for a Single Crime Protection From the Financial, Emotional, and Social Toll of Successive Prosecutions

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury.



SMITH v. MASSACHUSETTS Smith was tried in for illegal possession of a firearm. the jury could not prove the length of the gun so "firearm" but later they figured out it was but he plead the 5th amendment and got away freely.

court case

Conclusion:I feel that the 5th amendment can go both ways. You can be helped by not being brought to court if you didnt really do it but it can be bad as in the smith and massachusetts case if they did do it then they can get away.

people that did do the crime can get away if there is no real evience. It is out dated going before A.D It also survived the Dark Ages, Colonial Times, and now, where it is in effect in most countries today.people could wrongly read the evidence letting the person get away freely with no charges.
