An Overview of the Fifth Amendment

The Fifth Amendment is a constitutional right that states, “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury…nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without the due process of law…”

The Fifth Amendment provides for a number of rights relevant to criminal (and civil) legal proceedings, including: 

  • The right to a grand jury

  • Does not allow for “double jeopardy,” which means an individual cannot be prosecuted twice for the same crime

  • An individual cannot be compelled to be a witness or to testify against themselves

  • The right to the due process of the law

Unfortunately, many people who are charged with a crime do not understand their rights under the Fifth Amendment and often give statements to law enforcement agents that are self-incriminating. Don’t make this mistake! Anything you say to a law enforcement officer during an investigation can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Before you say anything in an interrogation, make sure you reach out to the Law Office of Robert R. Flores. We’ll make sure that your rights are protected and that you do not incriminate yourself. 

Remember, you have the right to remain silent. If you are facing interrogation, you have the constitutional right to have a lawyer present when you are being questioned by police.

Frequently Asked Criminal Law Questions

  • What happens if I am falsely accused of a crime in Texas? 

If you believe that you have been falsely accused and are innocent of the crime that you are being charged with, you need to contact a dependable Raymondville criminal defense attorney immediately. Unfortunately, simply believing and stating that you are innocent will not be enough to have your charges dismissed. You need the guidance and support of a criminal defense attorney to develop your claim and prove that there are no legal grounds for your charges, thus getting them dropped. 

  • What is the difference between state and federal criminal charges?

State charges occur when you have been accused of violating Texas state laws and are thus prosecuted in the state court system. Federal criminal charges are brought up by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and are prosecuted at the federal court level.     

  • What happens if my criminal case goes to trial? 

If your criminal charges proceed to trial, then it will be our duty as your criminal defense attorneys to prove your innocence by presenting factual evidence to the judge and/or jury. We will work diligently on your behalf to produce positive results that protect your future and your freedom. Do not trust your case to just anyone, your life and well-being depend on it.
