    The Fifth Amendment:
    an amendment to the U.S. constitution, ratified in 1791 as part of the Bill of Rights, providing chiefly that no person be required to testify against himself or herself in a criminal case and that no person be subjected to a second trial for an offense for which he or she has been duly tried previously.
    The Sixth:
    In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense

    Thank you; I wasn’t aware of the sixth amendment. Since I’m not in the USA, it’s not required reading in our schools. It reads to me as if the accused is innocent until proven guilty, but the crime is assued to be a fact.

    @ghostkeeper

    My thoughts, too. But who’s the accused? :)

    @Zero-Gabriel
    In U.S. court dramas on TV, it is very common to hear a character “plead the fifth” when asked a question to avoid incriminating him/herself with the answer (even when the person in question isn’t the accused).

    being innocent until proven guilty depends on lots of things and is NOT always true. There are about 30 something men in Texas that spent lots and lots of years in jail for crimes they didn’t commit, that are now free and can testify to that.
