Understanding the Sixth Amendment

The Bill of Rights is one of the most important parts of the United States Constitution. These first 10 amendments define a number of rights every American possesses, regardless of the circumstances. From the right to free speech, press, and religion, to the right to bear arms, Americans have fought and continue to fight for these rights on a daily basis. These rights do not go away just because you are facing criminal charges. In fact, the Sixth Amendment solely exists to address one's rights in a criminal case to ensure that all citizens are treated fairly.

Facing criminal charges can be extremely frightening. However, it is important to know that you do not have to go through this alone. A skilled and aggressive legal representative can help you fight to protect your Sixth Amendment rights. Contact the Austin criminal defense attorneys of Ian Inglis today at (512) 472-1950 to discuss your situation with a qualified legal professional.

Your Sixth Amendment Rights

The Sixth Amendment focuses on your rights in a criminal trial. It is important to remember that you are innocent until proven guilty and, therefore, are guaranteed these rights. The Sixth Amendment includes the rights to:

  • Understand the charges against you
  • Hire a lawyer
  • Be tried by juries in the state where the crime was committed
  • A jury of impartial peers
  • A speedy trial
  • Represent yourself
  • Cross-examine any witness or call witness in his or her favor

These rights are critical to ensuring that all criminal defendants receive fair treatment.
