The rights of the accused under the Sixth Amendment : trials, presentation of evidence, and confrontation
Most people think of the right to counsel when thinking of constitutional protections. This American Bar Association publication provides a concise look at the lesser known, but equally vital protections provided by the Sixth Amendment. A chapter is devoted to each protection such as speedy trial, public trial, jury trial, place of prosecution, and the confrontation clause. Each chapter begins with a discussion of the historical development of the right and continues with the current law. Numerous references to cases provide avenues for further research.
