PLZ CHECK MY WORK :) Why does the Fifth Amendment matter today? It prevents people accused of crimes from being sent far away to plead their case alone in front of a single judge.<<IS IT THIS? :) The amendment protects the rights of children and minors that are not covered by other language in the Constitution. Without this amendment, it would not be possible to pass laws to protect our right to use new technologies and ideas. If it didn’t exist, an innocent person could be forced to speak at their trial and may say something bad out of nervousness.

    The Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides, "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

    Also.. when you don't have OS in tests and/or exams, keep in mind to always go with your first educated answer.. or that 'gut' feeling. It's highly likely that you're correct :)
