The Sixth Amendment

Image

The Sixth Amendment states that citizens accused of a crime have the right to a fair, punctual, and public trial in the area where the crime was committed, a lawyer, impartial jury, confronted with the witness of the crime, and the nature and cause of his/her accusation. This cartoon shows a man being convicted of a man accused of a crime and arrested. He claims he’s not guilty, and 3 weeks later, he gets the trial that this Amendment promises him.
