  3. 3.

  6. 6. You can't be tried if there's not enough evidence. If the jury decides you are innocent, you can’t be tried again. You don’t have to say anything at your trial. <br />In our words – you can’t be tried without a grand jury. You don’t have to say anything. They can’t try you again if you are innocent.<br />Amendment 5<br />http://portal.countyofventura.org/portal/page/portal/Grand_Jury/WELCOME_1.JPG<br />
  7. 7. You have a right to a quick trial. The trial has to be public. The case has to have a jury of ordinary people. You have to know what you are accused of, to see and hear the witnesses against you, and to get help with witnesses and a lawyer.<br />In our words – You can’t be in jail forever without seeing the judge. You have the right to a lawyer and get witnesses.<br />Amendment 6<br />http://mason.gmu.edu/~rrotunda/lawyer-vulture.JPG<br />
  8. 8.

  9. 9. The government can't make you pay more than is reasonable in fines, and the government can't order you to have cruel or unusual punishments (like torture).<br />In our words – The government can’t treat you different than others even if you are convicted.<br />Amendment 8<br />http://www.msad40.org/mvhs/library/images/Government.jpg<br />
  10. 10. Just because these rights are listed in the Constitution doesn't mean that you don't have other rights too.<br />In our words – You have other rights not listed in the Constitution. <br />Amendment 9<br />http://www.arb.ca.gov/permits/bill-of-rights.jpg<br />
  11. 11. Anything that the Constitution doesn't say that Congress can do should be left up to the states, or to the people.<br />In our words – The state and people should decide what to do if it is not in the Constitution.<br />Amendment 10<br />http://moranmustangs.org/mariap/files/2010/10/constitution.jpg<br />
