Your Sixth Amendment Rights
The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution outlines the rights of those who are being tried for criminal offenses. It grants a considerable number of different rights that many people take for granted. However, without these rights, criminal trials would be much more difficult for defendants. The Sixth Amendment equalizes the playing field by making the difficult process of showing innocence in court something everyone can do.

Rights Granted by the Sixth Amendment
There are many rights that the Sixth Amendment gives to defendants in criminal trials. These rights are designed to protect the defendant from being treated unfairly during the trial. The Sixth Amendment gives alleged criminals the rights to:
- Cross-examine witnesses against them
- Speedy trials
- An impartial jury
- Legal counsel
- Information about the nature of the offense
Certain violations of these Constitutional rights can be grounds for mistrials or can even reverse a guilty verdict. The unalienable rights granted in the Constitution cannot be taken away from citizens, even if they are the subject of a criminal trial.
