The 5th Amendment

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 offence 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

The 5 Protections...

- Right to stand before a grand jury when facing felony charges in federal courts (Use of a Grand Jury)- Right not to have to stand trial for the same offense twice (Double Jeopardy)- Right not to testify if the testimony will self-incriminate (Self-Incrimination)- Right not to be deprived of life, liberty or property without the government respecting all freedoms and protections afforded to individuals in the Constitution (Due Process)- Right not to have your private property taken from you by the government with being paid for it (Eminent Domain)

Biggest Impact:

Miranda Rights:You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you. Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?
