The fifth, which states: no person shall be compelled in a criminal case to be a witness against himself" The Court however, can call on a witness to provide evidence against himself, and if he doesn't do so it can be interpreted as guilt. The fifth amendment also state " no person shall be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life and limb. In the ICC, no such luck, remember they have that de facto power which give the court the right to determine if the trial was good or not. The Sixth allows for a person to be confronted with the witness against him. The in Rule 75 the ICC doesn't even need a witness to convict, or the witness can remain
United States, Petitioner v. Alberto Antonio LEON et al. Respondent No 82-1771. Argued Jan. 17, 1984 Decided July 5, 1984 Rehearing Denied Sept. 18, 1984. 468 U.S. 897 (1984) The case presents the question whether the Fourth Amendment exclusionary rule should be modified so as not to defame from use in the prosecution’s case in chief of evidence obtained by officer’s action acting in reasonable reliance on a search warrant signed and issued by a detached and neutral magistrate, which was found not supporting by probable cause. The question presented at hand is misfeasance, officers acting lawfully , the defendant on the other hand, stated officers acted improper by their performance invading on defendants privacy and, on the Fourth Amendment, officers removing indispensable evidence
The Court argued that the constitutional right to privacy was limited to matters relating to “marriage, procreation, contraception, family relationships, and child rearing education.” The publication of records of official acts, such as arrests, did not fall under the rubric of privacy rights. Reputation alone is not constitutionally protected interest. The three justices (minority opinion) disagreed with the findings of the majority. The dissenting opinion reasoned that the decision justified that intrusive action defamed and stigmatized the respondent as a criminal. Justice Brennan, writing for the minority, reasoned an illegitimate and improper enforcement of law that assaulted the constitution (Chicago Kent College of
No! Armington’s request to drop the civil lawsuit is fruitless, because the 5th Amendment to the Constitution; double jeopardy also does not apply if the later charge is civil rather than criminal in nature, which involves a different legal standard crimes must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, whereas civil wrongs need only be proven by preponderance of evidence (Harper, 2007). Yes, the other rights inside protects witnesses from being forced to incriminate themselves. To "plead the Fifth" is to refuse to answer a question because the response could provide self-incriminating evidence of an illegal act punishable by fines, penalties or forfeiture. The Double Jeopardy Clause encompasses four distinct prohibitions: subsequent prosecution after acquittal, subsequent prosecution after conviction, subsequent prosecution after certain mistrials, and multiple punishments in the same indictment (Harper, 2007).
They proceeded to arrest Mr. Peabody, the judge dismisses the case because the police did not follow the Fourth amendment to get a warrant before they search and seize the owner property.

-Miranda is only required when both custody and interrogation are present. John was in custody, but the police had not yet began to interrogate him so they were not obligated to stop John from speaking. His words were voluntary, and therefore his incriminating statements were admissible in court (Stuckey, Roberson & Wallace, 2006, pg. 103). There are no rights in the Constitution that protect us from incriminating ourselves by giving voluntary statements prior to the beginning of a custodial interrogation.
The fourth amendment guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, unless probable clause can be provided. The Arizona Immigration Law says that law enforcement officers only need a reasonable suspicion of a person to be an undocumented immigrant. Citizens of America (legal immigrants), are subjected to embarrassing and uneccassary searches if considered to “look” like an undocumented immigrant and may have some properties taken away from them since it may look like a threat to the government. The 14th Amendment prohibits state and local governments from depriving persons (individual and corporate) of life, liberty, or property based on race, ethnicity, or gender. This law should not have been passed in the first place, since it violates citizen’s right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

The four basic clauses associated with the Fifth Amendment include, the grand jury clause: that no individual held responsible in justifying a capital, or either heinous crime, unless on a claim or demand by a Grand Jury. The Grand Jury Clause is an essential component because it requires a grand jury in capital cases to prevent a person charged without evidence, determined by a Grand Jury
