Bill of Rights

Timothy Bisono

The 5th Amendment

The Fifth of the U.S Constitution provides, "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 offense 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 9th Amendment


“The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

The 5th Amendment in other words

The 5th amendment guarantees the right to a grand jury. It also prevents double jeopardy. The fifth amendment protects you against self incrimination.

The 9th Amendment in other words

The 9th amendments state that you have other rights that aren't listed in the constitution. Just because they aren't listed doesn't mean they can't be violated.
