What is double jeopardy in criminal law?

The Bill of Rights provides several important legal protections for U.S. citizens. For those being investigated or charged with a crime, the most relevant parts of the Bill of Rights probably are the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth amendments. These amendments contain several limitations on the government’s power with respect to criminal suspects that have remained largely intact since becoming the law of the land in 1791.

After trial, you are not always entitled to a defense attorney

Most of our readers know that they have the right to an attorney when being questioned by police after an arrest, and during trial. But they may not realize that the Sixth Amendment’s right to counsel applies to many proceedings that take place after a guilty verdict. This is important, because the defendant’s rights and freedom are likely at stake at that point.

What is expungement?

Once a person completes a prison or jail term, it might seem like he or she has paid his or her debt to society. Under our legal system, in some ways a conviction, or even arrest, may haunt you for years, perhaps the rest of your life.
