Summarize the basic constitutional rights of the accused during trial
CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS 5 Amendment, the accused has a right to a counsel during trials. In the event that the suspect cannot afford a counsel, the government should provide them with an attorney. Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure expect an accused individual is to have an attorney in each stage of the trial starting with the initial appearance of the defendant. When a defendant demands an attorney during police interrogation, the interrogation is to stop until a counsel is provided. The 5 th Amendment gives a defendant the right against self-incrimination. While in the stand, a defendant can choose to or not respond to questions that they feel will self-incriminate them. Additionally, in the US constitution, the accused have the right to confront a witness. According to the 6 th Amendment, the accused has to be confronted with the witness in their case and has to have a compulsory process of getting witnesses to their favor. Further, this amendment requires that any witness whose testimony is to be used in a case has to appear before the court to enable the defendant to hear evidence against them from the person's mouth [Mic08].
