Right to Procedural Due Process of Law

This episode of Crash Course in Government and Politics provides a general overview of the Fifth and Sixth Amendment’s guarantees of procedural due process to ensure a fair trial. Discussed are Miranda rights, such as, the right against self-incrimination (pleading the “fifth”) and the right to an attorney. Also discussed is the Sixth Amendment guarantee of a jury of your peers and the protection against being tried for the same crime twice (double jeopardy).
