The fact that individuals accused of a crime are innocent until proven guilty and safeguarded by a robust set of rights and protections is one of the things that sets the United States apart from many other nations. According to the Sixth Amendment, individuals accused of crimes have a number of important rights, including the right to a speedy trial, to a jury of peers, to be informed of the charges against them, to an attorney and witnesses in their defense, and to face their accuser. This book reviews the history of the Sixth Amendment, including the events that inspired it and the major Supreme Court cases related to it.
