The sixth amendment in the constitution
The amendment in my words.
Supreme court case
1961- Gideon V. Wainwright vs. Florida
The court's decision
The court immediately put him in jail without a trial. It wasn't fair because he was poor so he could not get an attorney without any trial. Eventually wainwright argued the amendments rights and had a trial and was innocent.
