Fifth Amendment

The fifth amendment protects a citizen from being forced to be a witness against him/herself in a criminal case. In other words, the fifth amendment protects citizens from admitting any negative actions involved with a particular criminal case.

Ex. If you steal a candy bar from the store, no one can force you to admit that you stole the candy bar from the store.

Fourth Amendment

The fourth amendment protects citizens from any unreasonable searches or seizures. The fourth amendment also requires any warrant to be judicially approved for the action and be supported by a reasonable cause.

Ex. A police officer can't search your car unless you are suspected of committing a crime.
