No Double jeopardy, Self-Incrimination and Allow Due Process

The Fifth Amendment states a defendant is forbidden from being tried again on the same charges following a conviction, no one shall be exposed to accusation or the charge of a crime and all citizens should be treated fairly through a normal judicial system,especially as a citizens entitlement.

Double Jeopardy

In 1791, when the bill of rights was ratified, the fifth amendment stated that no one shall be accused of the same crime twice. It also states that no shall be compelled in any criminals case to be a witness against himself.


The citizens were protected of not being accused for the charge of a crime all because of the fifth amendment. Also because of the fifth amendment, no shall be held to answer for the capital or otherwise infamous crime.

Due Process

The Due Process meant that should be deprived of their life, freedom and property without the due process of law. It also meant that no private property can be taken for public use, without money money.
