The Fifth Amendment often gets a bad name from television and movies that portray it as merely a shield for the guilty. But the right against self-incrimination is one of the most important rights citizens hold in a free society. Grueling interrogations used to coerce confessions are a sign of a tyrannical state. And the burden of putting people behind bars must be on those who seek to do so--not those facing life-altering punishments. Professor Duane, a well-known speaker on this topic, is sure to spark your thinking about why we have the Fifth Amendment and how to help accused persons in your career.
