Picoblog Question – 2016 – Post #18

What is Amendment VI of the U.S. Constitution?

My two cents, but please share yours:

“Amendment VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.”

  1. This is just one of the reasons I hate the PAC vote by the Supreme Court. The commercials can say things about candidates without knowing the source, and there’s no accountability towards slander/liable. Elections are crazy enough, I need to know the source of information so I can investigate claims before casting my vote.

    • Your thoroughness in research is wonderful, Linda! Cheers, Ashley
